Someone once said that Megan was more of an exotic beauty, while Ellie was fresh faced and natural, whatever that meant. Guys often found Megan attractive and her sarcastic demeanor intimidating or intriguing. Usually guys who expected things went after her.
But what would it be like to really be naturally beautiful? To go running or wake in the morning and still look pretty? Megan wouldn't know, but Ellie lived that every day. Or had. What would it be like to have your beauty taken away?
Fire. There had been a fire in the car.
Now it was making sense. Now she understood her mother's continued crying. And Ellie wondered why they hadn't just let her die.
Ellie knew Jesus had heard her prayer. That Jesus was good, and Grandfather was bad. But now Jesus seemed as dead as her grandfather. He wasn't helping her now.
[Death]…had taken her grandfather and eventually would take everything and everyone she loved and hated. She’d always had her faith in God. Now she felt that Death was a larger god than God Himself. No, no, she told herself. She didn’t believe that, not really. But she knew Death’s face better than God’s. She felt the suffering of death in her scars and wounds, whereas she didn’t feel God at all anymore.

As the anonymous blogger at the beginning of almost every chapter states, Ellie is "perfect". She has it all-good grades, amazing looks, a great boyfriend, a plan for what she'll do in life, acceptance from friends and peers alike. But what happens when it's all taken away? In a matter of seconds, the life Ellie once knew is gone-she's involved in a car wreck, her classmate is dead, and she's scarred forever. Why would God allow this? How could He do something like this to her? These are questions Ellie will ask herself as she tries to find hope and sort through the pieces of her once flawless life, discovering that your worth is not defined by your circumstances, but the God who can pull you through the wreck and set you on your feet.. 15+.
