"Scotty compares herself to tofu: no flavor unless you add something. And it's true that Scotty's friends, Misha and Falcone, and her brother, Keone, make life delicious. But when a terrible accident occurs, Scotty feels responsible for the loss of someone she hardly knew, and the world goes wrong. She cannot tell what is a dream and what is real. Her friends are having a hard time getting through to her and her family is preoccupied with their own trauma. But the prospect of a boy, a dance, and the possibility that everything can fall back into place soon help Scotty realize that she is capable of adding her own flavor to life"--Provided by publisher.

Opinion

From Library Staff

16 year old Scotty just can't forgive herself after the fatal accident. Everything is either "before the train" or "after the train."

Scotty compares herself to tofu: no flavor unless you add something. And it's true that Scotty's friends, Misha and Faclone, and her brother, Keone, make life delicious. But when a terrible accident occurs, Scotty feels responsible for the loss of someone she hardly knew, and the world goes wrong.

"Heart-rending yet hopeful as well as fully, messily real, this novel will please fans of other authors who write emotionally intense, character-driven stories, such as Coe Booth, John Green, or Jacqueline Woodson."
