"The importance of honesty and being true to oneself..."

This is How it Happened by Paula Stokes: I've read and reread this book many times, and it always makes me think. Genevieve Grace wakes up from a coma to find out that she was in a car accident, her boyfriend is dead, and she was the one driving. All fingers point to the other driver involved in the accident, and the result is this story. It covers the intersection of drunk and drowsy driving, online shaming, and the important of honesty and being true to oneself. I'm appreciating this story even more as a new driver.
