After being released from rehab for an alcohol addiction Amy feels like she has entered a different world. Her parents--once only interested in themselves--are giving her extra attention. but the biggest change of all is returning to school sober and without her best friend. It's nearing one hundred days since Julia was killed in a car accident and Amy is still reeling from the loss of her friend and blaming herself for Julia's death. Without Julia by her side, she's become a social outcast. When her counselor suggests she begin keeping a journal she begins writing Julia letters, telling her friend what she's seeing and feeling.

While the story of a brooding high school student struggling with sex, drugs and alcohol isn't a new story I enjoyed Elizabeth Scott's take on it. Amy was an intriguing character, as were some of the students she encountered at school. The letters to Julia added an interesting dynamic to the story as I waited to see what she would and would not admit to her friend. It was a quick read, one that I would highly recommend.
