Simon Pulse, to be released June 5, 2012
Megan survived the plane crash—but can she survive the aftermath? An intense, emotional novel from the author of The Unwritten Rule and Between Here and Forever.
Megan is a miracle. At least, that’s what everyone says. Having survived a plane crash that killed everyone else on board, Megan knows she should be grateful just to be alive. But the truth is, she doesn’t feel like a miracle. In fact, she doesn’t feel anything at all. Then memories from the crash start coming back.
Scared and alone, Megan doesn’t know whom to turn to. Her entire community seems unable—or maybe unwilling—to see her as anything but Miracle Megan. Everyone except for Joe, the beautiful boy next door with a tragic past and secrets of his own. All Megan wants is for her life to get back to normal, but the harder she tries to live up to everyone’s expectations, the worse she feels. And this time, she may be falling too fast to be saved...

First of all, E. Scott? She’s an autoread for me. She wrote it, I’ll read it.
But beyond that, I really love the idea of this story. Survivor’s guilt is a powerful thing, and I think it’ll be fascinating to watch the characters battle through it.
Oh, okay, you got me…the “beautiful boy next door” part caught my eye too.
