This book begins right after the death of 15-yr-old Mia's mother. She was diagnosed with cancer and died 12 days later. Not long after, her father has a heart attack. Then her only sister leaves for college. Mia has to navigate herself through all of this, in addition to regular 15-yr-old problems like boys. She goes through so many emotions and doubts that the reader cannot help but feel for her. This book is a rather sad story but the humor keeps it from being depressing.
