Publisher's Summary

Carver Briggs never thought a simple text would cause a fatal crash, killing his three best friends, Mars, Eli, and Blake. But now Carver can't stop blaming himself for the accident, and, even worse, a powerful judge is pressuring the district attorney to open up a criminal investigation.

Luckily, Carver has some unexpected allies: Eli's girlfriend, the only person to stand by him at school; Dr. Mendez, his new therapist; and Blake's grandmother, who asks Carver to spend a "goodbye day" together to share their memories and say a proper farewell.

Soon the other families are asking for their own goodbye days with Carver - but he's unsure of their motives. Will they all be able to make peace with their losses, or will these goodbye days bring Carver one step closer to a complete breakdown or - even worse - prison?

Includes the song "The Motion of the Earth" by Jeff Zentner, performed by Jeff Zentner and Elin Palmer.

What the Critics Say

"One of the most stunningly heartfelt, lump-in-your-throat novels I've ever had the pleasure of reading. Hold on to your heart: this book will wreck you, fix you, and most definitely change you." (Becky Albertalli, author of Morris Award winner Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda)

"Zentner does an excellent job in creating empathetic characters, especially his protagonist Carver, a budding writer whose first-person account of his plight is artful evidence of his talent." (Booklist)

    "Text "car accident""

    While this maybe unnerving for whether coping with the loss of friends or a grieving mom and Dad.
    This book was phenomenal from to finish. Sad,funny at times, and thought provoking.

    Story
    "Read this one before Zentner's debut novel."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Well, it's not one of those books that leaves me wishing I could get those hours of my life back, but it's also not one that I will remember ever happened.


    What does Michael Crouch bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I don't think that the narration was anything remarkable, but I think the narration was better than the story.


    Do you think Goodbye Days needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, this is a stand alone story.
