Editorial Reviews

The Steadfast told as an angst-fueled confession, with interruptions by a series of letters written by Amy, a young woman just getting out of teen rehab to her friend Julia, whose death she can't stop blaming on herself. An exploration of ache, loss, self-destruction, and introspection, this audiobook will move listeners with its narrator's raw honesty in the face of loneliness and alcohol abuse. Tracy Pfau performs with realism relating to the sarcasm and of its young narrator without falling into the clichés of young-adult speech.

Publisher's Summary

It's been 75 days. Amy's sick of her parents suddenly taking an interest in her. And she's really sick of people asking her about Julia. Julia's gone now, and she doesn't want to talk about it. They wouldn't get it, anyway. They wouldn't understand what it feels like to have your best friend ripped away from you. They wouldn't understand what it feels like to know it's your fault.

Amy's shrink thinks it would help to start a diary. Instead, Amy starts writing letters to Julia. But as she writes letter after letter, she begins to realize that the past wasn't as perfect as she thought it was - and the present deserves a chance too.
