Rate this:
When sixteen-year-old David Nachman accidentally kills three-year-old Sarah Vale while drag racing, his world is thrown into turmoil and his life changes forever.

Set in Chester, Pennsylvania, in the 1960s, a town experiencing a renaissance, the story of Sarah's death is in stark contrast to the hopeful events swirling around David's community. He must find his place in this optimistic world in which Sarah's tragic death makes him feel like an outsider.

Although tragedy lies at the center of A Good Doctor's Son, the story is life-affirming and laced with humor, and David's voice is keenly alive. His search for peace after the accident and the choices he makes to find it are written in a compelling and honest style.
