Bryce remembers it like it was yesterday. The scent of chlorine. The blinding crack and flash of pain. Blood in the water. When she wakes up in a hospital bed, all Bryce can think of is her disastrous Olympic diving trial. But everything is different now. Bryce still feels seventeen, so how can her little sister be seventeen, too? Life went on without her while Bryce lay in a coma for five years. Her best friend and boyfriend have just graduated from college. Her parents barely speak. And everything she once dreamed of doing–winning a gold medal, falling in love–seems beyond her reach.
But Bryce has changed, too, in seemingly impossible ways. She knows things she shouldn’t. Things that happened while she was asleep. Things that haven’t happened yet. During one luminous summer, as she comes to embrace her second chance at life, Bryce learns to see life for what it truly is: extraordinary.
