Danielle is babysitting a five-year-old boy named Humphrey and is trying to teach him how to throw a perfect spiral, with a football. When one day they are walking home from the park, Danielle drops the football and Humphrey runs after it. Humphrey is hit by a car coming his way. Later after the accident, while Danielle is recovering, she has many flashbacks. One day she goes back the the park and meets a boy named Justin. Justin helps Danielle recover a very sad loss, and Danielle tries to forgive herself, and doing that will require a lot of strength she never knew she had.
I loved the book Imperfect Spiral by Debbie Levy and I recommend it for anyone that enjoys, sad, realistic fiction books. If you get confused when reading a book that jumps from one time to another constantly, then this book might not be the best choice. I give this book four and a half stars out of five, because it can get confusing at times but, all the characters have their own unique personality.
