Publisher's Summary

Here is the heart-wrenching book that inspired the critically acclaimed movie. Cal and Beth Jarrett are ordinary people: a happy couple living with grocery bills, taxes, barbeque dinners, and orthodontist appointments for their two sons. But when a terrible accident takes the life of one son, their lives begin to fall apart. This is the story of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances - and the lengths they will go to put their lives together again.

Superb study of manners

Its impossible not to compare books with their film counterparts. This is a case in point. They are both excellent and the film is very faithful to the book. There are small differences in order of events and their portrayal. But if you liked the film you should appreciate the book too. Good reading but sometimes a little annoying in the knowing way she speaks of teenage life.
