Mark grapples with the loss of his twin sister in this heart-wrenching novel of grief and resilience from National Book Award finalist Carrie Arcos. Mark knows grief. Ever since the accident that killed his twin sister, Grace, the only time he feels at peace is when he visits the bridge where she died. Comfort is fleeting, but it's almost within reach when he's standing on the wrong side of the suicide bars. Almost. Grace's best friend, Hanna, says she understands what he's going through. But she doesn't. She can't. It's not just the enormity of his loss. As her twin, Mark should have known Grace as well as he knows himself. Yet when he reads her journal, it's as if he didn't know her at all. As a way to remember Grace, Hanna convinces Mark to complete Grace's bucket list from her journal. Mark's sadness, anger, and his growing feelings for Hanna threaten to overwhelm him. But Mark can't back out. He made a promise to honor Grace--and it's his one chance to set things right.

Mark Santos is overwhelmed by grief and guilt after his twin sister Grace’s accidental death. The seventeen-year-old is convinced by Graces’s best friend Hannah to finish Grace’s “bucket list” from her journal. I really liked this book. I liked how you can feel Mark's grief and how he's handling it. It’s a sad book because Mark is overcome by grief and he tries to handle himself. I think I would like to read another book by the same author. It was written well and you can feel what the character is going through. The main characters in the novel are well developed and the events are realistic, given the fact that this is a contemporary novel.

Book that doesn't seem to give much emotion other than anger. It's nice, but Mark's animosity gets annoying after a while. Overall it was an enjoyable read
