The Rest of Her Life is something that kept coming up in my suggested books list on both Barnes and Noble and Amazon, so when I got a nook (I see a trend here… I get a nook to buy cheaper books, and instead just buy more books!) I bought it to finally read. Right up front, I’ve gotta say, the description of the book on its jacket and on various websites is kind of misleading. These places describe it as the story about Kara, who, shortly before her high school graduation, accidentally hits and kills a classmate, and the book supposedly looks at the troubled relationship between Kara and Leigh (her mom). But that’s not exactly what happens. Despite negative reviews because of this, I really enjoyed this book.
