“Let her go. I’ll stay.”
There are some decisions you can never unmake. You can
only atone for them—or try to. During her senior year of
college, Clare Michaels takes a spring break trip to
Florida with three other girls, including her best friend,
Lee. She’s hoping for adventure and a few stories to share
back at school. Instead, a string of bad choices leads to
a horrific encounter, and Lee offers herself up so that
Clare can escape.
In the weeks and months that follow that fateful incident,
Lee, once so dynamic and ambitious, flounders and
withdraws. Clare was the only person to whom she’d ever
confided about her troubled past. For Clare, that role
felt like an honor—until it became a burden. Now she’s
trying to make amends for her momentary selfishness by
taking care of Lee—just as she’s been taking care of her
high-strung mother, whose bestselling novel has been both
windfall and curse. Years pass, circumstances change, and
contact between Clare and Lee ebbs and flows, but the
events of that night in Florida are impossible to escape.
They keep dragging Clare back—forcing her to confront what
really happened, and her part in it, in hopes of
untangling guilt from loyalty and earning forgiveness at
