The Day I Died by Catherine Francis
Everything falls into place for high school junior Cat Morgan: perfect grades, three best friends, and of course, track dreams about to happen. But on November 7th, 2007, Cat’s life collapses with a brain aneurysm and a coma lasting seven days. When she wakes up, Cat discovers more adjustments than she bargained for, physically and mentally.
Not only is Cat’s world changing, everyone around her changes too.
Mary, the uptight, strict mother, turns into the protector.
Rose, the naïve, childish sister, becomes the role of the mature sibling.
And Ellie, the distant, shunned friend, must choose to let Cat back into her life or not.
Once she returns to school, Cat feels invisible and the center of attention at the same time. Despite this, Cat tries to reconnect with her friends, her studies, and of course, her sprinting dreams.
Cat wants, needs, for her life to go back to normal.
But can it?
