Matters of the Heart
This is a book that teaches a very valuable lesson about romance, family, and friendship. It comes from two peoples' points of view that were both effected in a car accident involving each other. Maggie was the victim in the sense of who got hurt in the crash physically. She ended up forgoing lots of therapy and surgeries just to get her to walk again. Caleb, the one in the car, was drunk the night of the accident. That then lead to him being caught by the police and being sentenced to about a year in juvenile jail. After Caleb is released from jail he reconnects with Maggie through a mutual job. At first they try to hide their feelings towards each other because the accident was always in the back of their mind. But as the story goes on they begin to grow more emotions for each other and they can't hide it anymore. Throughout the story things affect both of them and their relationship is the only thing that keeps them sane. Although they sometimes have their hardships when thinking about the accident, they can't deny the feelings they have for each other. As their relationship grows they find out more things about the accident that may change their view of the horrific night.  Library's SWAN Online Catalog
