          I read this book in 6th grade, and it was incredible. It's about these basketball players in high school who after winning a basketball game, go out drinking and driving. The main character collides with a wall and kills one of the passengers. The rest of the book is emotional and lets you really hear through his thoughts, the main character's guilt and other feelings.
