I think this book does a fairly good job of showing how the loss of a loved one effects people differently and some merits of grief counseling. However, overall I just felt like this was a bit boring and lacking more substance. ( )

Two years after her sister Mog's murder by a car thief, Annie finds herself graduating from high school and about to embark on paths her sister never got to travel. Her fears about the future compound her bereavement and she begins seeing a therapist. Complicating her progress is the fact that she is falling for Mog's ex-boyfriend and he for her.

This book is written from Annie's point of view, two years after the murder of her older sister Mog. Details of the time are referred to in flashbacks. Annie's mother reacts to the death by denying Mog's death and acting as if it hadn't happened, or that Mog hadn't really existed. Two years on Annie now has to make her own way and not follow in Mog's footsteps. It is at this point Annie needs counselling. By setting the time two years after the death the author shows how grief is a long-term issue and that grief is often hardest the second year.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0380729229, Paperback)

Just two years ago, Annie's sister Mog was happily looking forward to graduation day, the excitement of college, and planning for the future.

But all Mog's dreams ended on the eve of her graduation. She was murdered.

Now Annie is about to finish high school. But how can she just go on, right at the point where her sister's life ended? Annie's not alone in her grief, but she finds little help from those who share her loss.

Her mother, unable to accept the tragedy, never speaks of what happened. Mog's boyfriend Bobby has become a good friend to Annie, yet her attraction to him leaves her feeling guilty and confused.

Can Annie ever begin to let go of the hurt, yet hold on to her happy memories of her sister?
