Goodreads synopsis: Trinity Hartell’s life changed after the accident. Left with irreversible brain damage, she becomes a burden to her mother, a cause for heartbreak for her boyfriend Zack, and a flattened obstacle for her best friend, Ellie.
But then she starts writing. Perhaps it’s a coincidence that the psychotic, murdering protagonist of her novel bears a striking similarity to the charming Wiley Dalton, a mayoral candidate in the upcoming election.
Or, perhaps not...

My Review: I would like to thank the author, Clare C. Marshall, for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book for her one year anniversary tour. 
I was totally blown away by this book. Completely and utterly blown away by this book. It was just. that. good. This morning I sat down on my sofa with the intent of getting to the halfway point with it today and continuing tomorrow. I looked down at the pages, and noticed I only had 10 more left. And then it was over. 
Your heart totally goes out to Trinity and the love that Zack continues to have for her after the accident. I wanted to smack Trinity's mom for being a selfish person and putting her career ahead of her daughter, but then let's lump in Trinity's father for the same reason, because I sure as heck didn't see him rushing to take FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) after Trinity came back from the hospital. True though, this story was in Canada so maybe they have other laws, but surely they would have an equivalent?
Ellie was a selfish, hormonal brat who just saw the accident and its consequences as a chance to hook up with her bestie's boyfriend. However, at the end, I could only wish her the best.
