This very short (165 pages) novel written for young adults is tight, spare and very moving. Natalie is spending the summer before grade eleven working as a lifeguard and hanging out with her friends. She and her older sister Claire are that storybook pair of siblings who actually like each other. The story is a snapshot of the week Claire is hit by a car and Natalie has to face up to a real world of "would you ..." where hard choices have to be made. I enjoyed this book, if that is the word for it. The short paragraphs and short sentences carry you along. You walk with Natalie through the week and come to see there is more to her than the silly teenage girl we meet at the beginning.
