All We Know of Heaven by Jacquelyn Mitchard

This compelling novel about two best friends, Bridget and Maureen, tells an unimaginable story of tragedy. In a brief moment on an icy road in December their lives were changed forever. After a collision with a truck one girl is dead and the other is battered beyond recognition. The family, friends and town morn and bury a beautiful young lady and pray for the recovery of another who is still in a coma. But, a terrible mistake has been made and the doctors discover the girl in the coma is really the girl they thought they had buried.

The novel is based on a true story and is filled with hope, love, healing, guilt and an incredible tale by Jacquelyn Mitchard. I could see this used in a student book discussion group with many topics to explore. This is one touching book that I highly recommend you read.
