Seventeen-year-old Tamsen Baird didn't set out to become a teenage widow. All she did was fall in love and get married. But when her nineteen-year-old husband, Noah, suddenly dies in the middle of the night, her whole life changes. Now Tam is forced to return to the existence she thought she'd moved beyond-beginning with moving back home and finishing high school. But in order to overcome her loss and find her way forward, she'll need to reinvent herself and reach out to others in ways she never imagined. She'll need to open herself up to living-and even loving-again.

Editorial Reviews

"Tam's narrative voice will draw readers in to what real grief looks like, and Colin's deadpan humor keeps a serious story from being dragged too deep. Layered with rounded secondary characters and running its own haunting soundtrack, Coutts's novel explores family, grief, and second chances with delicacy and resonance." -Booklist"Coutts handles the engaging, emotional subject with a sure touch. As Tamsen and Colin make mistakes of the heart, readers should find it easy to sympathize with the ways they stumble toward healing." -Publishers Weekly"This intense and emotionally charged novel adeptly examines the five stages of grief and how one teen handles marriage, death, and rebirth. A must-have for YA collections." -School Library Journal
