Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner

Publication Date: April 6th 2017

Goodreads Summary
Can a text message destroy your life?

Carver Briggs never thought a simple text would cause a fatal crash, killing his three best friends, Mars, Eli, and Blake. Now Carver can’t stop blaming himself for the accident and even worse, there could be a criminal investigation into the deaths.

Then Blake’s grandmother asks Carver to remember her grandson with a ‘goodbye day’ together. Carver has his misgivings, but he starts to help the families of his lost friends grieve with their own memorial days, along with Eli’s bereaved girlfriend Jesmyn. But not everyone is willing to forgive. Carver’s own despair and guilt threatens to pull him under into panic and anxiety as he faces punishment for his terrible mistake. Can the goodbye days really help?

Jeff Zentner’s The Serpent King was one of the most buzzed about books of 2016. So, there’s no doubt that the anticipation for his next book would be insane. Goodbye Days sounds like an emotional story following the devastating death of Carver’s three best friends. Exploring the themes of loss, guilt, hope and hopefully forgiveness, this book is undoubtedly a top priority for this years reading list. I just have to get to reading The Serpent King first. 

What’s your most anticipated book?
