From the bestselling author of Mistakes to Run With, a heartrending tale of a mother hell-bent on saving her family after her daughter's suicide attempt—despite the destruction it might mean for herself. When Rose’s seventeen-year-old daughter, Juliet, attempts suicide, she does everything she can to hold her family together despite the inevitable unraveling that follows. Her husband Syd thinks their daughter is fine, that she’s going through a phase, and tells Rose she’s overreacting—as do the doctors, the school principal, and even Juliet herself. But Rose knows her daughter better than anyone. Doesn’t she? Rose and Juliet begin to drift apart and then fade into each other until they aren’t sure who’s saving whom—or if they’re saving each other. As Rose struggles to navigate this unknown territory, the family unwittingly makes decisions that suddenly send them all into an escalated tailspin toward disaster. Capturing the tightly coiled tension of seeing someone on the edge of a bridge about to jump, Yasuko Thanh takes us on a journey into the psyche of a woman grappling to understand why her daughter would want to die, and how to protect her child when she’s chosen not to protect herself. Haunting, emotional, and unforgettable, shows how a bridge is not something to leap from, but something to cross—how a mother and her daughter can find a way to connect, even when there is a river of difference raging between them.
