SEPTEMBER BOOK PICK:
A win brought them together, but loss may tear them apart.
When the sound of sirens cuts through a cool fall night, the small town of Worthy, Georgia, hurtles from triumph to tragedy. Just hours before, they’d watched the Wildcats score a winning touchdown. Now, they’re faced with the deaths of three cheerleaders—their promising lives cut short in a fatal crash. And the boy in the other car—the only one to survive—is believed to be at fault. As rumors begin to fly and accusations spin, allegiances form and long-kept secrets emerge.
At the center of the whirlwind are four women, each grappling with loss, regret, shame, and lies: Marglyn, a grieving mother; Darcy, whose son had been behind the wheel; Ava, a substitute teacher with a scandalous secret; and Leah, a cheerleader who should have been in the car with her friends, but wasn’t. If the truth comes out, will it bring redemption—or will it be their downfall?
#FirstLine ~ One thing everyone agreed on---it was the perfect night for football.
What a fantastic read. It was one of those reads that grabs onto you and does not let go. The pace and characters are perfection. I can see why this is a SheReads Book Club pick. I wanted to find somebody who read this book and talk about it the minute I finished. This story broke my heart and then slowly put it back together all the while keep me gripped to the page. It was an examination of tragedy and how people react to immense pressure. It was fascinating and thought provoking and so well written. A true gift to readers who love deep, moving stories with massive heart.
