Description of this Book

Ryan: In the headlights, I saw her face. Brown hair swinging as she turned to stare at us. Brown eyes stretched wide and startled. Then she hit the windscreen. Tara: I heard a roaring, shuddering noise. I was in mid-air, arms and legs stretched out. Then everything the car, the guys, me went rushing and shrinking together in a tiny glare of light, and I sank into the dark. Ryan has just got his licence. He's in the car with his mates. Tara likes to go running. She's on her way back home. Neither of them is paying much attention...The harrowing accident that follows impacts many lives. This is a moving and compelling story of recovery, told by one of New Zealand's foremost children's writers.

Awards Short-listed for New Zealand Post Book Awards for Children & Young Adults 2005
NZ Review David Hill has ably assumed the persona of the contemporary teen. ...despite its subject matter, this is a novel about hope, about budding romantic attachments, about developing one's talents, and above all, about supporting others. Recommended. Tailspinner Magazine
