Mark Twain wrote: Many a notorious coward, many a chicken-hearted poltroon, coarse, brutal, degraded, has made his dying speech without a quaver in his voice and been swung into eternity with what looked like the calmest fortitude.

It was the summer of 1985, and she was young and inexperienced, but longing to love and to be loved in return, when he entered her life. At the same time, while she was desperately seeking the love and approval of a mother who never wanted her in the first place, events totally beyond her control claimed her as their victim, leaving those she left behind unable to cope with the enormity of her absence. "WHY SHE LEFT US" is written as a series of diary entries, the events seen through the eyes of several different people. But at its center is a love story chronicling a romance that transforms the lives of two people who, for too brief a period of time, experienced the greatest happiness they had ever known.
As much as I liked the writing and language of this story, it just isn't my cup of tea. I can't believe an average person would write diary entries like these. There's too much angst, melodrama and pure tragedy. In truth, none of the characters are particularly likable. There isn't really a happy moment in the story. And the great reveal at the end really isn't all that great.
The best thing about this audiobook is the outstanding narration by Natalie Eaton and Travis Henry Carter. Both performances are superb.
