What would cause a seemingly normal father and husband to kill a young teen and assault a man? Glen Bauer, the narrator of this novel, wonders just that as he composes a letter to his daughter, Sara.

Glen is a CPA who runs an accounting home business. He, his wife, and their six-year-old daughter Sara live in New Jersey, in a suburb of New York City, where his wife works. Since he works out of their home, Glen is the primary parent to shuttle around Sara, putter around the household chores, and pick up his wife at the train station each day. Often aggravated with the irresponsible and reckless drivers who speed through their neighborhood, Glen impulsively decides to give one of them a scare as the teenager tears towards him and Sara in an expensive Jaguar. In a split second, the car veers out of Glen’s way and into a tree, killing the driver almost instantly. Although people from the neighborhood quickly surround the scene, no one saw exactly what happened.

This suspenseful book kept me turning the pages to find out what Glen would do when confronted with each new discovery. The unraveling of Glen and Liz’s marriage, and how it affects their daughter, is skillfully recounted, including the emotions and confusion that Glen feels. Although this is categorized as general fiction, I think it would appeal to the YA audience as well. Those young readers who enjoy Deb Caletti’s suspenseful fiction might enjoy this one. ( )

The thought behind this book about one incident caring weight forward that has affect on another decision is a great thought. Actions VS consequences sort of thing. However, I did get to the point where I felt this man was just being stupid and selfish. Road rage is rather a mindless activity. I'd give this author another try but I was glad this book was brief.

This book was about making bad decisions and what happens when those decisions are made. Glen Bauer causes a car accident in which a young man is killed. ( )

If only we could take back some of the decisions we make in life. That's what the character Glen Bauer thinks as his world shatters after he makes one bad mistake......lying about an accident in which a young boy was killed. His marriage falls apart and his daughter looks at him in a different way. He once had everything and then he has nothing. I will look up this author's first book "What You Have Left" and put it on my to-read list. ( )

I thought the book was a real page-turner. It was thought-provoking, and I think it would be a good choice for book discussion groups. There could be good discussions about the moral dilemmas presented in the book as well as marital and parenting issues. ( )
