Allie lost everything the night her boyfriend, Trip, died in a horrible car accident - including her memory of the event. As their small town mourns his death, Allie is afraid to remember because doing so means delving into what she’s kept hidden for so long: the horrible reality of their abusive relationship.
When the police reopen the investigation, it casts suspicion on Allie and her best friend, Blake, especially as their budding romance raises eyebrows around town. Allie knows she must tell the truth. Can she reach deep enough to remember that night so she can finally break free? Debut writer Jennifer Shaw Wolf takes readers on an emotional ride through the murky waters of love, shame, and, ultimately, forgiveness.

The protagonist was so whiny, secretive, and selfish that it was tough to be sympathetic.

She has a nice voice, but she pauses every two or three words, and sometimes her mouth is so dry that there's a distracting clicking sound.
Not finishing books is something I try to avoid, but this one was very tough to slog through. I had to increase the reading speed by at least 2x to be able to tolerate the narrator, and the frustration at the protagonist just made it worse.

This was a DNF for me. I just didn't care about the characters enough to finish. I was able to figure out what had happened without needing to hear the full story.
