Summary from Goodreads:
A year and a half ago, Amanda Tart’s brother got behind the wheel drunk and killed his best friend. Today, he’s coming home from prison.
Amanda’s been the one living with the fallout, made worse by her brother’s recent unapologetic TV interview. People think he’s a monster. Still, she loves him. It’s her dark secret, until she starts getting close to Henry again–whose sister is paralyzed from the accident.
A year and a half ago, her brother destroyed his life. Now Amanda has to decide if she’ll let his choice destroy hers.
I’ve wanted to read this book for a while. I sort of have a soft spot in my heart for gut-wrenching contemporary books. This is no different. What’s Broken Between Us sounds so sad and heartbreaking, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. The entire premise is interesting – I’m all for complicated circumstances. Also, when I was in high school, I participated in a program called Every Fifteen Minutes that was meant to caution against drunk driving – so I’m extremely interesting in the fictionalized aftermath of what we worked so hard to prevent.
