The world can fall apart in the time it takes to read a text message. Erin Campbell is lucky – she’s popular, she’s been accepted at Berkeley, she’s got the perfect boyfriend, a great car, parents with plenty of money, and a future that’s going to be even better than her dreams. Lucky, right? But then one Tuesday afternoon, Erin’s luck runs out. She’s in her car, driving on a deserted country road, and she reads a text from her boyfriend. Just one. It’s only a few words, no big deal. What could happen in ten seconds, anyway? But she doesn’t see the boy on the blue bicycle. Not until it’s too late. Not until he’s lying in the road, broken and bleeding, and she’s standing there staring down at him, her cell phone in her hand. Things get worse when Macy, an outsider at Erin’s school, is charged with the crime. Macy’s black, and she doesn’t live in Erin’s upscale neighborhood. The police say she confessed. If Erin lets Macy take the blame, her own perfect life can be saved. Or can it? This is a novel about what it means to do the right thing in a world that isn’t always fair. Erin Campbell lost herself on a Tuesday afternoon; finding herself again will mean looking at who she really is. Warts and all. And there’s nothing harder than that.
