    This is a book about life. Involves 4 teenagers surviving a bombing. Is about their lives after survival. Living is difficult at best. They are never the same. after this experience. Loved the characters and the theme of forgiveness. Thanks to Goodreads.

    Smart, terrifyingly realistic, and full of heart, Stevens has written a wonderfully insightful book about how tragedy divides and connects. Each survivor harbors an internal conflict that they must face head on. Compelling; wonderful characters!
