All We Know of Heaven by Jacquelyn Mitchard

This is a story inspired by headlines. It is about two best friends that look a lot alike and when there is an accident and one dies (Bridget) the other is in a coma (Maureen) the girls are confuse for one another. This is primarily a story about what happens after it is discovered who really survived. It is heartbreaking novel with people who make good and bad choices. At least one thing did strike me as a little off. A big deal is made in the book about the families being catholic (especially Maureen's family) and Maureen's mother wished she had her grandmother's King James bible, which is a protestant bible. It was just a small little detail that I didn't understand why it was in there in the first place, especially when it didn't make sense for a supposedly very catholic woman. But other than that I thought this was a good novel but not TU. I'm nay.
