Otis and Meg were inseparable until her family abruptly moved away after the terrible accident that left Otiss little brother dead and both of their families changed forever. Since then, its been three years of radio silence, during which time Otis has become the unlikely protg of eighteen-year-old Dara, whos hell-bent on transforming Otis into the Olympic swimmer she can no longer be. But when Otis learns that Meg is coming back to town, he must face some difficult truths about the girl hes never forgotten and the brother hes never stopped grieving. Quietly affecting, this poignant debut novel captures all the confusion, heartbreak, and fragile hope of three teens struggling to accept profound absences in their lives.
