An unnamed sixteen-year-old's account of events begins on a snowy evening after his brother Kyle brawls with a classmate, Duane, over Duane's tsister, the beautiful Emily. The two basketball stars make apparent amends, and Duane offers the brothers a ride home from a party. Drunk and still fuming at Kyle, Duane drives recklessly to scare his passengers. Duane hits someone on the road and then leaves Kyle, the narrator, and the victim's body to freeze while he speeds away. The next day, the narrator and Kyle must face Duane's powerful father. The man hated the boys' father when the two adults were in high school, and he hates Kyle for dating Emily. The brothers learn that the abandonment by their father after their mother's drath is only the tip of their father's mysterious history and only a sliver of What Happened.

On a snowy night, when they were driving too fast, Kyle and his brother find themselves in a predicament that they never expected to be in. In addition to his already crazy and mixed up life, the narrator now must deal with the death of a stranger, a death he was a part of. The book portrays the unpredictable and meaningful experiences of a boy and his brother. Scarily simple and yet complex on many levels, this book was suspenseful without being a horror.
