This. Book. Wrecked. Me.
No reading in public.
Cried my contacts out.
Had to take a few days in between readings at the beginning.

Definite for Gateway consideration.

This book killed me emotionally... I loved it.

“Where are you guys? Text me back.”

Carver Briggs never got a reply to his text, which he had sent to his best friend Mars. Mars had been driving home from the movies with their other best friends, Eli and Blake. The police found a half-written response to Carver on Mars’ phone after his car rear-ended a stopped truck, killing the three boys.

Now Carver not only has to spend senior year without this best friends, but with the guilt that has been eating at him. And it’s not like anyone has made it easier for him… Eli’s twin sister is turning the school against him and Mars’s dad, who is a powerful judge, is trying to get a criminal investigation opened up against Carver to blame him for the death of Mars.

The thing is, Carver blames himself too.

He does have allies though, including Blake’s grandmother, Nana Betsy. One day, she proposes the idea of a Goodbye Day to remember Blake by sharing their favorite stories of him and giving him a proper goodbye. After this, Carver begins to reach out to the other families to have “goodbye days” with them as well.

I’m a mess even writing this review… that’s how badly Goodbye Days tore me up. I can honestly say that this is one of my top reads of the year and right now this book is at the top of my favorites list. I highly, highly, highly recommend it! ( )

Goodbye Days is a book recommended to me by one of my former students and then appeared on the March Book Madness YA bracket! I had to read this one! Carver and his friends are in high school and as Carver reflects throughout the book, we see more of the light-hearted fun they had together. The fun has stopped for Carver and his friends after the accident.

Carver was waiting for his friends and texted, but his friend opted to text back while driving. A semi and...Carver’s three friends are gone. Carver is struggling with guilt, loss, and now panic attacks, as his world is changed forever. One father wants Carver charged and thrown in prison for his part in his son’s death.

Carver tries a Goodbye Day to help families heal, but who does it help more? Will Carver have a future? A must read! ( )

This book made me so angry! Not at it, but for the characters. Very good read, definitely connected with the characters. Also pretty heavy stuff so I'd be hesitant to recommend it to younger teens. ( )

Actual rating: 3.5 stars

The main emotion I felt while reading this book was not sadness, but anger. I was so mad at the entire judicial system and the fact that everyone was blaming poor Carver for something I personally did not view him responsible for. Was this the point of the book? Maybe. I did like how there were many different perspectives shown, and the question of "who is to blame?" hung over the entire text, and never received an answer. But gosh, I was so ANGRY. I expressed this anger to everyone who would listen because Carver did not deserve to go through what he did while he was still in so much pain himself.

Anger wasn't the only emotion I felt while reading. I shed quite a few tears reading this book, yet I feel like it could have packed a stronger punch. I loved the idea of the "goodbye days" and I almost wish there had been more of those, even if it doesn't really make sense for there to have been. I loved the flashbacks too, and found they were used at just the right time to make it hurt the most. But mostly, I love the ending. What a beautiful ending; the last 50 pages are artful, and even the thought of it is making me choke up a bit.

Goodbye Days really works on your emotions, and sends a pretty important message to today's youth, but I really do think it could have been more and could have packed on the pain and really made me hurt. But maybe that isn't the story Zentner wanted to tell. ( )
