Allie lost everything the night her boyfriend, Trip, died in a horrible car accident—including her memory of the event. As their small town mourns his death, Allie is afraid to remember because doing so means delving into what she’s kept hidden for so long: the horrible reality of their abusive relationship.
When the police reopen the investigation, it casts suspicion on Allie and her best friend, Blake, especially as their budding romance raises eyebrows around town. Allie knows she must tell the truth. Can she reach deep enough to remember that night so she can finally break free?
Description from Amazon.
Why I can't wait?I'm a sucker for stories about reconciling with the past. I learned about this book after seeing a passing glimpse of the cover at a conference last year and knew I had to read it. It sounds like it has a little mystery, intrigue, and a lot of emotion.
