The story starts with the initial car accident, the roads were icy and the family was very badly injured; the mother and father died. Mia and Teddy, Mia's younger brother, were taken to the hospital. This event triggered the story.
Most of the story takes place in the hospital. The present time is spent here and everything else is mostly flashbacks that contribute other scenes. Here Mia's grandparents, boyfriend, and best friend come to visit her.
There was a lot of flashbacks at Mia's home. Most of the involved her bonding with her parents and her brother. Mia and her parents had a very strong bond, she was always honest with them, and they were very understanding.
Another place that a lot of flashbacks was the abandoned building that Adam, Mia's boyfriend, rehearsed with his band. Mia remembered lots of memories of Adam and her best friend, Kim. They all bonded over the music they made and it really grew a connection between the three of them.
