Four Three Two One, by Courtney Stevens


Golden “Go” Jennings wasn’t supposed to be on Bus 21 the day it blew up in New York City.


Neither was her boyfriend, Chandler. But they were. And so was Rudy, a cute stranger Go shared a connection with the night before. And Caroline, a girl whose silence ended up costing nineteen people their lives.

Though it’s been a year since the bombing, Go isn’t any closer to getting over what happened. With Chan completely closed off to even talking about it, Go makes an impulsive decision: round up the rest of the survivors and head to New York City. There they will board an art installation made of the charred remnants of Bus 21 and hopefully reach some sort of resolution.

But things are never easy when it comes to rehashing the past. Uniting the four stirs up conflicting feelings of anger and forgiveness, and shows them that, although they all survived, they may still need saving.

 

 

 

" The terrifyingly realistic plot and compelling characters will immediately hook readers’ attention. An original and captivating coming-of-age tale of trauma and resilience. (Kirkus Reviews)

“The unhurried development of characters and events make for a satisfying crescendo. [Stevens] writes with depth and emotion.” (School Library Journal)

“Stevens has written a compelling examination of survivor’s guilt and the stories people construct around senseless tragedy to try to make sense of it, including how damaging those created narratives can be. A gripping story that’s both entertaining and deeply moving.” (ALA Booklist)
