Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner; 399 pages
Carver’s three best friends died in a car accident. The driver was texting and driving on the thruway. Who was he texting?
As if that guilt wasn’t enough, now Carver may face criminal charges for “reckless” behavior that caused the death of his three best friends.
Jeff Zentner has crafted yet another eye opening and heart breaking novel. This time the relevance of the book really hit home.
What’s this book about? Texting and driving.
It’s something we have all done. I️’ll admit it’s something I’ve done before. But unless you’ve suffered some sort of consequence most people don’t think anything of it.
This book is so important to read on so many levels. Carver loses his three best friends in a car accident where the driver was texting and driving. It follows his story after their deaths, trying to deal with everyday life again.
It was sad and funny and enlightening.
My heart goes out to anyone who has ever had to deal with anything like this. I️’ve lost a friend when i was young … it such an unreal experience, they’re there one day and gone the next.
I️’d definitely recommend giving this book to any teens you know learning how to drive. i also think it should be required reading in school. Hopefully it will make twice about texting and driving.
