Story by Amy L. Bernstein

Read by Stephanie Richardson

Ages 12+ | Amy L Bernstein | 5 hrs 57 mins.

Publisher’s Synopsis: Fran Singer is a regular 8th grader relishing her role in the school play, enjoying hanging out with her best friend and thinking of ways to steer clear of her annoying little brother. . . when suddenly, in a matter of seconds, everything changes. A tragic accident with major consequences shoots her out of her ordinary world into one racked with guilt, shame, and complete alienation. Starting over after all that isn’t easy. . . but is it possible? Will her life be better, the second time around?

A suspenseful story full of teen obstacles that provide humor, compassion, and despair. This page turning story is relevant and paints a clear picture of how unexpected events can lead to an appreciation for friends and family.

Stacey Nunn, Library Media Specialist

I highly recommend this book to anyone, young adult or older, who has dealt with heartache, devastating loss, guilt, or grief.

About the Narrator

Narrator Stephanie Richardson won first place at a storytelling festival as an 11-year-old and knew she was destined for a life behind a microphone. Nearly 20 years later, with a background in theatre, professional vocal training, teaching music to children, and spending every minute in the car with an audiobook plugged in, she finally started her dream career as an audiobook narrator and voice-over artist. While not enjoying a book, she can be found playing zoo-keeper to 4 rambunctious children, playing nerdy board games, or talking to her plants.
