Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ten-year-old Jennifer Day lives in a small mining town full of secrets. Trying to make sense of the sudden death of her teenage sister, Beth, she looks to the adult world around her for answers.

As she recounts the final months of Beth’s life, Jennifer sifts through the lies and the truth, but what she finds are mysteries, miracles, and more questions. Was Beth’s death an accident? Why couldn’t Jennifer—or anyone else—save her?

Through Jennifer’s eyes, we see one girl’s failure to cross the threshold into adulthood as her family slowly falls apart.

Synopsis:

With her family falling apart from the sudden death of one of their own, ten-year-old Jennifer is left alone to look for answers to questions about what happened and why in the final month's of her beloved sister's short life in the hopes of finding the closure she so desperately seeks.

Synopsis:

After the suicide of her troubled teenage sister, eleven-year-old Jenny struggles to understand what actually happened.
