This is the story of how Cora uses her artistic ability with mapmaking to help her cope with the death of her older brother. It's the new school year, and along with the normal stress of starting high school, Cora has to deal with kids and teachers who see her as the girl who's brother died. Through her art class Cora develops a relationship with Damian, her brother's friend who was in the car with him the night he crashed. The writing is eloquent and the story poignant. I highly recommend this book, especially for readers looking for a great story about family and overcoming difficult circumstances.
