Orlagh Cassidy's energetic narration gives full attention to the family dynamics of divorced Doctor Deborah Monroe, her demanding alcoholic father, and her teenage daughter, Grace. Cassidy powerfully depicts the argument that takes place between Grace and her mother as they drive through a pounding rainstorm. In the midst of youthful determination and a mother's resolve--there's an accident. They hit a man, who turns out to be Grace's history teacher. Grace is the driver who hit the man, but Deborah insists on taking responsibility and is charged vehicular homicide. Eventually, all their family relations are strained to the limit by this devastating secret. Cassidy gives a polished performance that can only garner more fans for Delinsky.
