Done with book
Before the book has actually started, Mandy, the main character, and her mom have gotten in a car accident. Mandy's mother died a few days after the crash and Mandy was blinded. They had been turning a corner when a truck crashed into them. Mandy's mom wasn't wearing a seat belt and was sent flying through the window into a light pole. Mandy was wearing hers, but she was still thrown forward and she slammed her head on the dashboard, causing her to lose her sight. If I had been standing on the corner near them, or had been driving in a car at the intersection, I would have immediately called 911. The proof would be pretty clear, since one person is dead and another has lost their vision. Not to mention the wrecked cars.
