Summary

Half my life ago, I killed a girl.In this powerful, unforgettable memoir, acclaimed novelist Darin Strauss recounts a tragedy and its aftermath. In his last month of high school, just after turning eighteen, Strauss is behind the wheel of his father#x19;s Oldsmobile, driving with friends-having #x1C;thoughts of mini-golf, another thought of maybe just going to the beach.#x1D; Then out of the blue: a collision that results in the death of a bicycling classmate that shadows the rest of his life. In spare and piercing prose, Darin Strauss explores loss and guilt, maturity and accountability, hope and acceptance-and the result is a staggering, uplifting tour de force. From the Trade Paperback edition.
