Arggg.. If you are interested in the book just read the inside dust jacket. It will tell you everything with out the torture of actually reading the book. ( )

Anna wasn't drunk at the time of the accident, even though she was on her way home from a party. And the accident wasn't even really her fault - the other car swerved into her. But she killed her brother's girlfriend and she can't get it out of her head. ( )

Wrecked by E.R. Frank, is a story about a teenage girl who has to deal with life after a devastating car crash, killing her brothers girlfriend , Cameron, and puncturing her best friends lung. Everyone tells her Cameron's death is not her fault, but she is still in a trauma.
This book has to deal a lot with family and friends. She has an angry father thats affects her life in a big way. She has to go to therapy, and slowly she lets all her emotions out, and starts to recover.
This is a great book to read, as teenagers would be likely to relate to the things she does, such as partying, drinking, and situations with her friends. It also makes you think how you would feel if you were ever in a car crash.

The police, her parents, and others try to convince Anna that it is not her fault. Just because she was driving, just because her best friend Ellen has a punctured lung, just because the other driver is dead, just because that dead person happens to be her brother's girlfriend, this accident is not her fault. But there are details the police do not know—there are details that no one knows but Anna. Anna knows the truth and she has to find a way to live with herself. With the help of a therapist, Anna begins slowly revealing the truth—only to discover much deeper truths. Wrecked deals with the trauma of post-traumatic stress, teen drinking, and family dysfunction without being didactic. Teens who like gritty psychological drama will love Frank’s graceful, engaging writing. ( )
