"I couldn’t feel my arms or legs. My neck, my hair, my stomach—they weren’t mine anymore."

~Estella in Careful

If you lived in Willow Ridge, a town based on Jade's hometown near Syracuse, New York, you'd know of Estella Montclair. Estella is one of the top high school sprinters around and she's in the newspaper all the time.
After Estella is killed in a texting and driving crash, what remains of her face and body is devastating.

But not all of her has died.

During the first month after her death, Estella's spirit travels among her living friends and family. Her best friends Zara, Eva and Jett show her how pain and sorrow can break apart or strengthen a bond. She also sees for the first time that loss can spark revenge and destructive behavior, catastrophe can come without warning, and we all have secrets, but she discovers that even the darkest days can become hopeful, peaceful and purposeful and inspire acts of compassion.

She wonders if her chance for love with Phoenix has passed her by, and if out of sight truly means out of mind.

And maybe one day the girl who caused her death will admit her mistake. 

While adjusting to a new state of being, Estella struggles to face the limitations that come with death, but blossoms by recognizing she can still touch the lives of the people she once knew so well.
