Summary, etc.:
"What does it take to make a hero? Junior doctor Kerry Smith is addicted to rescuing others. Eighteen years ago, on the eve of the millennium, she saved the life of teenage footballer Joel Greenaway who 'died' for eighteen minutes. But life after death doesn't guarantee a happy ending"-- Provided by publisher.
For nearly eighteen minutes rising soccer star Joel Greenaway is dead. For nearly eighteen minutes, Kerry Smith performs CPR on her long-time crush. And for nearly eighteen minutes, Tim Palmer is too shocked to help. It turns out, saving a life doesn't always guarantee a happy ending. With his soccer career cut short, Joel lashes out and breaks Kerry's heart. Tim struggles to reconcile his dream of becoming a doctor with the reality of failing to act. Year after year Kerry picks up the pieces after both broken men. When Kerry is the one who needs saving, will anyone be there for her? -- adapted from jacket
Author Notes

Eva Carter was inspired to write How to Save a Life by her own experience of giving CPR to her partner, who was successfully resuscitated, as well as her mother's stories of work as a trauma nurse. Eva is a pseudonym for internationally bestselling nonfiction and rom-com writer Kate Harrison, who worked as a BBC reporter before becoming an author. She lives in Brighton on the south coast of England and loves Grey's Anatomy, walking her dog, and running very slowly on the seafront.
