This book is written from the viewpoint of the teenage daughter and her mother. After a car wreck with a fatality the book leads into life,relationships, trust, forgiveness, and relationship struggles too. The first few chapters kind of repeat to get the point across but the ending will make you cry with a full heart! ( )

I enjoyed reading this book and really wanted to know how it would end. Although I felt disappointed in some of the trial details (wondering why certain things were not being done), i felt the plot wrapped up nicely.

*I received a digital copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. ( )

A momentary lapse of judgment at 16 years of age deals a devastating blow to a high school girl. This novel, written by alternating between her voice and her mother's, grabs you from the first page and leaves you with an eventual believable and satisfactory resolution. The story is good, and the daughter's voice rings true, the mother's a bit less, but the voices of the men in the periphery of the story hardly at all. Still, worth the read as it will hit you on an emotional level, with its moral lesson. I think it could have been much improved with some editing of the repetition that plagues the first third of the book. This would appeal more to the YA market than general fiction, in my experience.

Received an electronic copy through the Library Thing Early Reviewers program. Thanks! ( )

A blind curve on a narrow road, the glare of early-morning sun, and a moment’s inattention are all it takes to end one life and put the teen driver and her family at risk of losing everything.

Sixteen-year-old Jess can’t remember the details of the accident, making it difficult-to-impossible to put up a legal defense. Thrust simultaneously into the spotlight of small-town gossip and the harsh judgment of social media, Jess and her single mom, Liz, struggle to bear the emotional and financial costs ahead of them.

Achterberg has peopled her novel with characters struggling to control forces that are simply beyond them. Liz is also distracted by a tenuous situation at work, by an emotionally and physically distant father struggling with the early stages of an age-related dementia, and by the uncertain relationship developing with her daughter’s lawyer. To complicate matters further, Jess’s father finally seems to be beginning to grow up and wants a second chance at putting the family back together again. Jess has to face the very real possibility that she could be sent to prison for vehicular manslaughter and the unavoidable destruction of the friendships she thought she had with her peers.

Actherberg definitely understands the inherent viciousness that erupts in a small town when one of its own crosses the line and decisions that should be made in private end up being thrashed out on editorial pages and Facebook posts. She also does a good job of tracing the parallels between Liz’ backstory and Jess’s current dilemma, both centering on an adolescent whose momentary bad judgment changes the course of her life.

The author has placed the outcome of the trial about three-fourths of the way into the book, acknowledging that the characters’ journeys aren’t over yet, and wraps things up with a somewhat open-ended but definitely hopeful conclusion. ( )

Blind Turn is a work of fiction but it tells the all-true story for so many people. When Jess Johnson makes one, seemingly innocent mistake, she changes her life forever. This could be the story of anyone that made a mistake behind the wheel. For me, it brought up memories of my own brother's horrific car crash that caused his neck to be broken, one passenger to die, and the teenage driver to go to jail. This book tells the story of so many families that have to deal with tragedy after a car accident. It is a gentle reminder, though, that even when you think there is no hope, everything will work out ok in the end.
