Back cover copy

Dear Vicky,

I still can't believe you're gone. I'm so lonely without you. It's impossible to know what to do without you here - you were always the one who made all the decisions for us both.

I keep thinking about you, and about the accident. My memory is so blurry already - but I have a horrible feeling that it might have been all my fault.

I can't help wondering what I'd say to you, if I could see you again . . .

Love from your best friend always,
Jade x x x
