Pre-Review: Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner


Goodreads Description:
What if you could spend one last day with someone you lost?

One day Carver Briggs had it all—three best friends, a supportive family, and a reputation as a talented writer at his high school, Nashville Academy for the Arts.

The next day he lost it all when he sent a simple text to his friend Mars, right before Mars, Eli, and Blake were killed in a car crash.

Now Carver can’t stop blaming himself for the accident, and he’s not the only one. Eli’s twin sister is trying to freeze him out of school with her death-ray stare. And Mars’s father, a powerful judge, is pressuring the district attorney to open a criminal investigation into Carver’s actions.

Luckily, Carver has some unexpected allies: Eli’s girlfriend, the only person to stand by him at school; Dr. Mendez, his new therapist; and Blake’s grandmother, who asks Carver to spend a Goodbye Day with her to share their memories and say a proper goodbye to his friend.

Soon the other families are asking for a Goodbye Day with Carver, but he’s unsure of their motives. Will they all be able to make peace with their losses, or will these Goodbye Days bring Carver one step closer to a complete breakdown or—even worse—prison?

I feel like this book will make me cry, that it will get super personal to me even though I dont have like.. a twin sister, not literally and things like that. But I have high hopes for this book, it just sounds so good and that is why I got it from Blogging for Books, so I am very excited about it for that. 
The fact that it involve texting while driving is such a good topic for me, not because I do it and thankfully not because I have lost someone, but because I always appreciate authors writing about real and current problems that often times are ignored, people don't want to talk about it or teens might not want to listen to because it comes from the news or things like that, its better to be able to relate to things than being told to do things.
So I am very excited and I can not wait to read it as soon as finals are over.
