Sandy Rawlins is sixteen years old. Her father – her best friend – has just passed away. She immediately begins to unravel, and yet her mother is not grieving. Where can Sandy turn as the waves of grief overwhelm her? She doesn't want to be a burden on her friend, Lennie, who has her own problems, trying to be the responsible one at home while her mom is out bar-hopping. The boy next door – always a friend, but now perhaps something more – wants to be there for Sandy, but is it already too late? She has lost a part of her soul, and the aching sadness pulls her a little further away each day. Set in contemporary Toronto, this is a story of intense loss and of reaching out for connections.
