A sensitive story about a teenage girl that recently lost her young sister on 9/11 - the same day the towers fell. The book is made up of letters that Tess, the main character, write to her deceased little sister Zoe. Through these letters, Tess narrates the year following her sisters death. Tess ends up leaving her mother's house and goes to live with her father through the summer. She meets a love interest, Jimmy and dabbles with drugs and sex. Throughout the events of the summer she comes to terms with the guilt of her sisters death on such a monumental day in history. A poignant book about working through the greiving process. I would recommend this book to older high school students that are capable of differentiating the difference in right and wrong when it comes to moral issues pertaining to drugs and sex.
