Lee didn’t say anything then, and people got hurt because of it. Now Sarah’s parents are publishing a book about her, and so this might be her last chance to set the record straight. The only problem is, Lee isn’t the only survivor with a story to tell about what did—and didn’t—happen that day.
Sarah’s martyrdom is important to a lot of people, people who won’t take kindly to what she wants to do. And the more Lee learns, the less certain she is about what’s right. Which is worse: the guilt of staying silent or the consequences of speaking up?
