Synopsis:

After receiving a full-ride scholarship to Mills College for Girls, it appears Sarah's future is all laid out before her ... that is until she walks into a poetry class led by Mr. Haddings, a student teacher from the nearby University of Washington. Suddenly, life on the UW campus seems very appealing, and Sarah finds herself using her poetry journal to subtly declare her feelings for Haddings. Convinced Mr. Haddings is flirting back, she sets off for school in the rain with a poem in her back pocket---one that will declare her feelings once and for all.
Mr. Haddings has noticed Sarah's attention; the fallout from any perceived relationship with a student is too great a risk, and he has decided to end all speculation that morning. But everything changes when Mr. Haddings feels a thud on his front bumper when he glances away from the road, and finds Sarah in the street with blood pooling beneath her.

EXCERPT : 

Cydni suddenly shouts, “Sares, the car!”
I straighten, tugging my eyes from her to the rumbling Mustang; my sopping shoes suction the wet street inches from the brilliant headlight. I lurch, flailing my arms and screaming from my gut, “No!”
Bash! Ooooof!
The impact scoops me onto the sizzling hood. I’m sprawled like a broken loose-leaf binder, then shot off the side of the car. I’m flung through the air.
In the dark, through the tiny, stinging raindrops, I jangle apart. The Mustang’s red taillights squint smaller and smaller. The wet fir trees’ uplifted arms stretch toward me, their pungent needles pricking the air, but I fall, fall, fall. The black asphalt bites my scalp and cracks against my skull.
