A gripping story of two brothers who lost their lives on the same night.


It was a night we thought we’d never forget. It was graduation—and, like most teens, we were looking forward to celebrating with our friends. We knew it was the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. Some of us were heading off to college. Others were moving away. We had made some amazing friends and even better memories.

While we were sitting around reminiscing and laughing, someone pulled out a bottle of pills. Oxy. In a brief moment, we made One Choice that we can never take back. How were we to know this would be our last night? When you’re a teenager, you don’t think that One Choice can end it all. But it can. We are here to tell you that your choice matters.

“To tell this story from Nick and Jack's perspective and close in her voice will leave your heart broken and your eyes full of tears also knowing there is hope and education is a powerful tool for prevention. ”

April O'Leary


"Primary Prevention is key, and if we can save just one life by telling Nick and Jack's story than the pain of writing their story was worth it"

Mike Savage

“This is a MUST read for every high school student! Read the book, then have those conversations.”
