Publisher's Summary

On the night of Alex Carmody's sixteenth birthday, she and her best friend, Cass, are victims of a terrible car accident. Alex survives; Cass doesn't. Consumed by grief, Alex starts cutting school and partying, growing increasingly detached. The future she'd planned with her friend is now meaningless to her.

Meg Carmody is heartbroken for her daughter, even as she's desperate to get Alex's life back on track. The Birches, a boarding school in New Hampshire, promises to do just that, yet Alex refuses to go. But when Meg finds a bag of pills hidden in the house, she makes a fateful call to a transporter whose company specializes in shuttling troubled teens to places like The Birches, under strict supervision. Meg knows Alex will feel betrayed - as will her estranged husband, who knows nothing of Meg's plans for their daughter.

When the transport goes wrong - and Alex goes missing - Meg must face the consequences of her decision and her deception. But the hunt for Alex reveals that Meg is not the only one keeping secrets.

    Listening to books and knitting. Two favorite activities I can do simultaneously!

    "YA Literature"

    This is YA literature at its best. Involving story; teenage angst; clueless parents. Which is also the reason I didn't like it. I'm no longer a teenager. Haven't been one in a very long time. (My grandchildren are older than Alex.) I'd rather read about adult themes, such as following Alex's parents through their divorce, through his addiction and rehabilitation, if he goes for any. How did the family get to the "other side"? Were they intact? What did they learn? This was a good story, just not my choice.

    "Uninteresting and flat"

    Book was uninteresting and flat; I can't say I'd recommend. I kept waiting for some sort of revelation or action, but nothing. If you're into a feel-good, happy ending, then read this, but that's all it is.

    "Not the best audible story"

    Unbelievable that a 16 year old would be so into the fake "Phish" band... could have done without that story line. And the characters singing was A N N O Y I N G! Also unbelievable that a intervention "transporter" would share any of their own personal life details with the kid they were transporting.

    Story
    "Wish I had chosen something else"

    I don't know which is worse- the bratty, entitled teenager, or the loser husband. Maybe it's the way that the mom can't seem to stand up to either one. This book is full of irritating, dysfunctional relationships.

    "Deliver Me!"

    I can't even finish this novel. Super trite and really bad narration. Don't waste your time with this one.

    "Shallow"

    Story shallow, no real point or "ahhah" moment. Bit frustrated I stuck with it. Felt like going to happy corner.
