WHEN DORA, ELENAS older sister, is diagnosed with depression and has to be admitted to the hospital, Elena cant seem to make sense of their lives anymore. At school, the only people who acknowledge Elena are Doras friends and Jimmy Zenk—who failed at least one grade and wears blackevery day of the week.
