Before I Wake By, C.L. Taylor

Sue's daughter Charlotte lies in a coma after being struck by a bus.  Sue becomes convinced that Charlotte stepped in front of the bus on purpose.  But why?  Sue becomes obsessed about why her daughter to try to kill herself.  Following the clues, of what happened in the days leading up to her daughters accident, Sue attempts to pieces together what happened to cause her daughter to try to kill herself.  I really enjoyed this book, it's a visceral mystery.  A warning to women who have been in abusive relationships, if you are sensitive to the subject of domestic abuse do not read this book!  It will bring old emotions up.  C.L. Taylor presents the subject in a very realistic non-clique fashion.
