Some mistakes can never be repaired.
The narrator of Train Wreck is looking back at the year she was 15 … She is in love with a bad boy named Johnny. Johnny’s friends play a cruel trick on a misfit named Susie by convincing her that Johnny is attracted to her. When the prank goes too far, the narrator wants something big to happen to prove Johnny still loves her. The prank goes tragically wrong when Suzy is gang-raped. The narrator, now married to Johnny, reflects on the day she watched the horrific attack and did nothing.
“… a great choice for mature readers who are looking for something different to sink their teeth into.”
