Canadian Library Association YA Book of the Year

In 1981, sixteen-year-old Sally McLean is in a car full of teenagers when it plunges through the ice to the bottom of Mistik Lake. Sally is the only survivor.

Many years later, Sally's teenaged daughter, Odella, is left wondering whether the accident is to blame for her mother's life as a sad alcoholic who eventually abandons her family and flees to Iceland with another man. When Sally suddenly dies in an accident, Odella, her father and her two younger sisters are almost overwhelmed with grief and confusion, until three people provide help and healing in unexpected ways.

Good book, though I'm not sure how memorable it is. I read it back in the beginning of summer, forgot I had read it, and have reread it! Cheers to a memory like a sieve!

Sally's past haunts her and affects her teenaged daughter, Odella. A good read for teens who want something a little more sophisticated and mature, but its not too sexually graphic in nature.
