On the way home he decides to kill himself and lets his car crash into an oncoming vehicle. Brent does not die, however; the girl, Lea, who was driving the oncoming vehicle does. Lea's parents give Brent a task. He is to take four whirligigs and a bus ticket and travel to all of the places where Lea was scheduled to go that summer. Stop after stop and person after person, Brent struggles to forgive himself.
