In an Instant
by Suzanne Redfearn
About In An Instant
A deeply moving story of carrying on even when it seems impossible.
Life is over in an instant for sixteen-year-old Finn Miller when a devastating car accident tumbles her and ten others over the side of a mountain. Suspended between worlds, she watches helplessly as those she loves struggle to survive.
Impossible choices are made, decisions that leave the survivors tormented with grief and regret. Unable to let go, Finn keeps vigil as they struggle to reclaim their shattered lives. Jack, her father, who seeks vengeance against the one person he can blame other than himself; her best friend, Mo, who bravely searches for the truth as the story of their survival is rewritten; her sister Chloe, who knows Finn lingers and yearns to join her; and her mother, Ann, who saved them all but is haunted by her decisions. Finn needs to move on, but how can she with her family still in pieces?
Heartrending yet ultimately redemptive, In an Instant is a story about the power of love, the meaning of family, and carrying on…even when it seems impossible.
This was such a great heartbreaking read! The author does a great job of setting the story, talking about how over protective Mo’s mother is that you don’t realise its not Mo you should be worried about its Finn! Finn Miller’s life is over in an instant, one minute she is chatting away the next she realises she is dead after a devastating car accident tumbles her and ten others over the side of a mountain.
This story is told from Finn’s perspective, seeing her family make impossible choices that ultimately leave two dead, and others losing fingers and toes. Not only that we see how people left who should no better makes choices to protect their own instead of the children. I really hated how Uncle Bob treated Finn’s brother, I was crying as I read it as I know what was going to happen and I neither I or Finn could stop it.
In an Instant is a heartbreaking tale of survival, and the choices that you make how it reflects on you as a person and the devastating effects it can have on those that survive. We see Finn hang on the edge of two worlds, and as the story progresses and as everyone is moving on from her death, my heart ached a little with everyone letting her go, the one that made me completely come undone was when her father was packing up her sports shirt in the garage, that was the final thread that held her to this world.
I honestly loved this book and I can’t express in to words just how the book made me feel, I highly recommend giving this one a read.
