    Carry the One begins in the hours following Carmen's wedding reception, when a car filled with stoned, drunk, and sleepy guests accidently hits and kills a girl on a dark, country road. For the next 25 years, those involved, including Carmen and her brother and sister, connect, disconnect, and reconnect with one another and their victim. As one character says, "When you add us up, you always have to carry the one."

    Melinda says: "Carry On...Without Me"
    "Just couldn't get in to it."

    Story

    I could not get into this book. I found the start of the book cluttered with too many characters that was hard to keep straight throughout the book. I had to keep asking, which one was this again? I think the writer could have had a good story but unfortunately the first 7 chapters barely mentioned the story line with the outcome of taking the life of the child. I read this book in my book club and of the five of us in the club, all of us felt the same way.
