This young adult title offers a plot revealed in reverse: The audiobook begins a year to the day after Nina's death; her little sister Leo's grief moves backward toward the fateful night of the accident, bringing listeners along to discover the painful details. Sarah Goer's performance is clear and quiet, punctuated by moments of enthusiasm. For the most part, the audiobook is fine, albeit slow-paced. Goer's voice shifts among characters, and sometimes the vocal distinctions sound forced. Leo struggles to remember anything from the accident, a problem that is a central focus of the story: What actually happened? And how does one manage grief and move toward an emotional place that is more habitable? Fans of Benway will enjoy this sensitive exploration.
