Remembering Raquel by Vivian Vande Velde
Raquel was hit by a car and has died before this book even begins. The chapters of the book are told by people who knew Raquel who are now remembering what they knew of her. Some of the people affected by her death knew her well but others were people who couldn't be bothered to talk to her when she was alive. Although Raquel wasn't a complete outcast she was also not very popular and very few people know who she really was. As all the characters remember her in different ways we find out many details about her life that might indicate her accident might not have been so accidental after all.
