Goodreads:  A win brought them together, but loss may tear them apart.

When the sound of sirens cuts through a cool fall night, the small town of Worthy, Georgia, hurtles from triumph to tragedy. Just hours before, they’d watched the Wildcats score a winning touchdown. Now, they’re faced with the deaths of three cheerleaders—their promising lives cut short in a fatal crash. And the boy in the other car—the only one to survive—is believed to be at fault. As rumors begin to fly and accusations spin, allegiances form and long-kept secrets emerge.

At the center of the whirlwind are four women, each grappling with loss, regret, shame, and lies: Marglyn, a grieving mother; Darcy, whose son had been behind the wheel; Ava, a substitute teacher with a scandalous secret; and Leah, a cheerleader who should have been in the car with her friends, but wasn’t. If the truth comes out, will it bring redemption—or will it be their downfall?

Ope’s Opinion:  If you remember and enjoyed the show Friday Nights Lights, you will really enjoy this book.  It is set in  a small town, surrounding football and cheerleaders, where everyone knows everyone else – or do they?  The secrets come out slowly throughout the book.

This story shows how hard it is to be a teen trying to make decisions that will effect you later in life.  Being the parents isn’t easier either.

I have another Marybeth Mayhew Whalen on my shelf.  This book made me want to move it up on TBR list.
