When the sound of sirens cuts through a cool fall night, the small town of Worthy, Georgia, hurtles from triumph to tragedy. Just hours before, they'd watched the Wildcats score a winning touchdown. Now, they're faced with the deaths of three cheerleaders - their promising lives cut short in a fatal crash. And the boy in the other car - the only one to survive - is believed to be at fault. As rumors begin to fly and accusations spin, allegiances form and long-kept secrets emerge.
At the center of the whirlwind are four women, each grappling with loss, regret, shame, and lies: Marglyn, a grieving mother; Darcy, whose son had been behind the wheel; Ava, a substitute teacher with a scandalous secret; and Leah, a cheerleader who should have been in the car with her friends, but wasn't. If the truth comes out, will it bring redemption - or will it be their downfall?

Another Author I Will Look Out For
I stumbled across this book because I was checking for any books I may have missed by Joshilyn Jackson, one of my favorite authors. She narrates her own novels and I love to listen to her. I was so surprised to see some negative things said about her performance, I love the way she brings out the quirkiness in the characters she is reading about. I had never heard of Marybeth Mayhew Whalen, but Ms. Jackson as narrator was enough to sell me on giving it a try. I’m so glad I did. Besides the great performance, the book was wonderful. Great characters and a story that kept me interested from beginning to end. I hope to hear more from the two of them again.

Slow start but good finish
I really liked this book. However it took until the last two hours to find that out. The stories of tragedy, longing, love, and defending one’s true self is sweet and at times heart wrenching. The character’s stories are told in pieces, person by person. This lent a slowness to the progression but in the end it came together nicely. Performed by the always excellent Ms Jackson, the telling is easy to listen to. Stick with it. Promise.
