The Golds and the Hartes, neighbors for eighteen years, have always been inseparable. So have their children—and it's no surprise that in high school, Chris and Emily's friendship blossoms into something more. And then, suddenly, unimaginable tragedy strikes, threatening the bonds that had seemed so indestructible. When midnight calls from the hospital come in, no one is ready for the truth. Emily is dead at seventeen from a gunshot wound to the head. There's a single unspent bullet in the gun that Chris pilfered from his father's cabinet—a bullet that Chris tells police he intended for himself. But a local detective has doubts about the suicide pact that Chris describes. This extraordinary, poignant novel paints an indelible portrait of two families in anguish as they find themselves on opposite sides of a painful divide ... and confronts every parent's worst fear.
