I still have yet to reach very far in the book, Between Here and Forever, but so far Abby, the main characters', sister Tess is still in a coma. She isn't speaking to her parents at all and is just mad at the world. As Abby, Claire, the nurse, and a "cute" boy awaits in the hospital room, Abby notices Tess's eye twitches every time the boy speaks. "Tess can here him!" exclaims Abby. She tells the boy to keep speaking so everyone can witness Tess twitching. As everyone acts like there is no hope and that Tess is gone, Abby knows there is still hope, she knows there is still life in her and she will come back.
