On the night of his senior prom, Monroe finds Annika floating facedown in the family pool. He dives in and rescues her, but not quickly enough to prevent her from slipping into a coma. As the family copes with this crisis, Monroe's mother turns to religion, his father turns to liquor, and Monroe himself must decide what's worth believing in, what's worth fighting for, and, finally, who he wants to be.
By turns humorous and heartbreaking, personal and sweeping, familiar and extraordinary, Brian Strause's mesmerizing novel takes readers on an unforgettable emotional journey into America's heartland.

The book had potential but there's no plot at all! It's kinda like listening to an auto-biography. I was expecting a lot more (mainly because of the nice reviews) and the ending was NOT what I was expecting at all. It made the book worse in my opinion because it seemed kinda senseless and abrupt.
Also at times it was difficult to relate with the characters. With Monroe's constant sarcasm it was hard for me to feel sorry for him.
I gave 2 stars for Monroe (he's pretty funny) and Annika (their relationship is sweet) and last star because I managed to finish the book in 2 days.
