"Telling Christina Goodbye" was a pretty good book, but I honestly expected it to be better. There was so much more that could have been done with the plot line. I guess it just didn't feel like the book was done thoroughly. It wasn't as emotional as it should have been. The emotions just weren't described in depth enough, which made it seem kind of plain and unfeeling. Not a bad read, though. ( )

I read this book a very long time ago and it made me cry. It is such a wonderful book. Lurlene McDaniel's books are one of a kind, they are the best books. I have read many of her books and they all have a meaning in them. They are sad, but great books. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553570870, Mass Market Paperback)

Trisha Thompson and her best friend Christina are having a great senior year. Trisha and her boyfriend, Cody, are making plans to attend Indiana University together in the fall, while Christina has already received a scholarship to the University of Vermont. Everything would be perfect if only Trisha got along with Christina’s controlling boyfriend Tucker, who is trying to convince Christina not to go away for college. But suddenly their lives change one night when Tucker is driving the four home from an away basketball game. When his car hits a patch of black ice and overturns, Tucker walks away with barely a scratch, but Trisha is injured, Cody is in a coma, and Christina is dead. Those left behind must learn that it takes time for their scars—both visible and not—to heal. And they must find the courage to move on with their lives.
