Two sisters, who along with their father have been caring at home for their mother who is in a vegetative state after a car accident, must chart a new course after their father dies and they are left alone.

I LOVED Marcelo (and listened to it too), so I was really excited to "read" this one. I was sooooo disappointed however... I'm not sure if it was the narrator, or just the style of writing - which is completely different from Marcelo. The two sisters have been raised by their very conservative, minister father, so they don't use teen speak or think like regular teens, and I found myself getting impatient with the way they talked and acted. They're both very sheltered and naive, and as intrigued as I was with their predicament, I had to force myself to finish listening.
