ALL WE KNOW OF HEAVEN
New York : Harper Collins, 2008
friends Maureen and Bridget, often referred to as twins or look-alikes,
drive to cheerleading practice when Maureen accidentally slides on the
icy roads, crosses the dividing line and hits an 18-wheeler. Rushed to
the hospital, Maureen dies while disfigured Bridget lies in a coma. One
family grieves and prepares a funeral for Maureen while the other readies
mentally, physically and financially for the months of therapy that lie
ahead. While the families make their preparations, a dental surgeon checks
various records and discovers that a terrible mistake has been made--the
teens have been misidentified.
