Megan Taylor is an artist and single mother to 14 year old Olivia, when she receives the news that her cancer has returned, and it's not curable. She is faced with the difficult decision of whether to continue on with her treatment or not. It's an emotional journey, and she questions her own moral and ethical values, and decisions she had made long ago. If certain secrets came to life, they could put Olivia life, and the lives of Megan's closest friend, into turmoil.

Meanwhile, Olivia's world is falling apart before her eyes, and there is nothing she can do about it. She finds herself acting out in ways she cannot begin to understand.

Megan's closest friends are also struggling with their own secrets, wondering how, or even if, they should expose them, or be forever haunted by their pasts.

This was a very touching story, and the author really explored how the death and dying of someone from cancer, and the decisions that person makes, affects the people around them. As someone who is living with stage IV breast cancer, I can understand Megan's struggle with the decision on whether to stop her treatments or not. The story had a good flow until the last few chapters, then it just felt kind of disjointed with plot twists that just seemed like they were thrown in there because the author wasn't sure how she wanted to end the book.
