Rest of Her Life by Laura Moriarty
Book DescriptionThe Rest of Her Life is a luminous, compassionate and provocative look at how mothers and daughters with the best intentions can be blind to the harm they do to one another. Leigh is the mother of high-achieving, popular high school senior Kara. Their relationship is already strained when, in a moment of carelessness, Kara makes a mistake that ends in tragedy - the effects of which not only divides Leigh's family, but polarise the entire community. Leigh recounts the events of the summer that follows the tragedy, grappling with the hard reality of what her daughter has done and the devastating consequences of her actions on the family of another teenage girl, all while struggling to protect Kara.
