By Jodi Picoult
A compelling emotional drama of love and guilt that grips from the very first moments, by the UK's bestselling women's fiction author.
Luke Warren would sleep in the dirt if it meant he could be under the stars.
He lives by the laws of nature, and would surely want to die that way.
But Luke is in a coma, and his family must make an unbearable decision.
As tensions and secrets rise to the surface, the tragic accident which brought them back together against the odds could well tear Luke's family apart forever.
They know Luke would not want to live like this.
But how can they choose to let him die?
