Your whole life can change in the blink of an eye. What started off as a fun family BBQ, soon ended in tragedy and chaos. Naomi and her boyfriend Alex are celebrating, they've had some good news. Whilst driving home a fatal accident leaves Naomi fighting for her life, Alex battered and bruised and nine-year-old Lilly dead. 

Naomi is so traumatized she has no memory of the accident. Alex tells Naomi and everyone else that it was Naomi who was driving after she had been drinking at the BBQ. Naomi has no choice but to believe him as she cannot remember anything after getting to the party. 

Will Naomi be prosecuted for driving dangerously and go to prison? or can she regain her memory in time to save herself and remember what really happened.

This book really shows you how your life can change in the blink of an eye. It also shows you how you have to cherish and fight for everything you have in life. This book was fantastically written, a real eye opener, this book makes you feel real empathy for Naomi and her family and it gets you really angry towards Alex, right from the start, I had a feeling Alex was lying and the more I read the more I hated him. 

I love it when a book sends you on a roller coaster of emotions and this book definitely did this. Wonderfully written with great characters both ones you love and ones you hate, an easy and interesting plot, keeps you gripped and engaged in the story.
