Summary via Goodreads
On the day Liz
Emerson tries to die, they had reviewed Newton’s laws of motion in
physics class. Then, after school, she put them into practice by running
her Mercedes off the road.
Why? Why did Liz Emerson decide
that the world would be better off without her? Why did she give up?
Vividly told by an unexpected and surprising narrator, this
heartbreaking and nonlinear novel pieces together the short and
devastating life of Meridian High’s most popular junior girl. Mass,
acceleration, momentum, force—Liz didn’t understand it in physics, and
even as her Mercedes hurtles toward the tree, she doesn’t understand it
now. How do we impact one another? How do our actions reverberate? What
does it mean to be a friend? To love someone? To be a daughter? Or a
mother? Is life truly more than cause and effect? Amy Zhang’s haunting
and universal story will appeal to fans of Lauren Oliver, Gayle Forman,
and Jay Asher.
This book just sounds awesome with a capital A! Granted, science isn't necessarily my thing (especially physics), but this book seems like so much more than that. How do our decisions effect those around us? Such a great question. This is a book that seems like it could transcend so many boundaries and genres. I hope it lives up to these beliefs.
