Jude is living life the best he knows how, he gets a job, hangs with his buddies, and gets close with Becka. Becka starts making Jude's life look up, until the accident. After the accident, thought, Jude reaches a new low. Can he get out of this one?
The suspense in Before You Go killed me. From page one you know about the accident, this fact makes every ride in the car almost unbearable. The story is so light hearted in the beginning when reading about Jude and his friends joking around. I almost stopped reading so that the bad times wouldn't come, but it was worth it to keep reading to the end.
