For the next twenty-five years, those involed, including Carmen and her brother and sister, craft their lives in response to this single tragic moment. As one character says, "When you add us up, you alwasy to carry the one."

I love Carol Anshaw, but this book isn't as strong as her first two novels, Aquamarine and Seven Moves.

Too trashy for me

Beautiful language, great characters and a moving plot add up to a superb book.

Poignant, sad, tragic, but slowly paced and generally overdone.

Funny, hip and smart, especially in her subtle cultural signifiers.

This cleverly titled book examines the impact of a fatal accident on a group of people. A character-driven novel full of humor and crisp dialogue.

A good basic idea, built upon layer by layer to form a very enjoyable (although devastating) story about life and loss. Would recommend!
