Book Description HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 175 x 119 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Reef is a troubled sixteen-year-old, who likes to smoke pot and drink with his friends in a derelict abandoned building. He also likes to throw stones from bridges over roads. There s a reason he throws stones - stemming from an abusive childhood - but one of his stones ends up smashing the windshield of seventeen-year-old Leeza Hemming s car, causing a horrific accident and landing Leeza in a hospital for three months, learning to walk again. Meanwhile, Reef faces charges in court and ends up being sentenced to a group home, where he will have to attend classes and volunteer at a rehabilitation centre. Because of some fluke in the assignment, he ends up volunteering with Leeza - they both don t know who each other is - and they start to help each other face life. Ironically, Reef is the key to Leeza s recovery, and vice versa. Then Leeza s mother walks in her daughter s hospital room and recognizes Reef from the courtroom.
