Before Luke came into his life, all Ben cared about was skateboarding, and whether his father would ever remember that he was alive. Then there was Luke, and it felt like he was being carried along on some sort of wave. But then Luke died, and everyone at school thinks it's his fault. Maybe it is. As three boys try to deal with the death of their friend and brother, one turns to alcohol to escape his guilt. Another looks to a gang to replace what he's lost. Ben needs to find a way to reconcile his role in Luke's death and prove that he was not to blame. He must also learn that the man he will become is his to define.

I liked how this story was told from different point of views. It reflected how different people react to situations and tragedy. However I found it depressing and the description gave everything away.

A very emotional read. This book was good and I would recommend it for you to read. (Even if the summary gave away more than it should have.)

I like this book because this book shows varieties of emotions.

This book was intense due to the strong emotions and violence that took place in the book. However, I found it to be very realistic in that sense.

I found this book to be very intriguing and very emotional, however, I found the summary gave away more than it should have.

This book went from happy to sad to happy and then back to sad again. This book was a emotion roller coaster. [Is that the right term?]

This book is quite interesting. A little bit about bullies and the usual cliques you find the typical high school. Has a pretty dramatic event, not one usually thought of for high school. And discusses the aftermath of the event.
