Ten-year-old Jennifer Day lives in a small mining town full of secrets. Trying to make sense of the sudden death of her teenage sister, Beth, she looks to the adult world around her for answers.

As she recounts the final months of Beth's life, Jennifer sifts through the lies and the truth, but what she finds are mysteries, miracles, and more questions. Was Beth's death an accident? Why couldn't Jennifer--or anyone else--save her?

Through Jennifer's eyes, we see one girl's failure to cross the threshold into adulthood as her family slowly falls apart.

It starts out really slow and boring and then the rest is okay.

This book was really stange but you have to get that there is no underlying message or pattern. It's just girl gone wild. Once you stop reading for a message or plot (p.s. there is none) then you can just enjoy a book about a girl.

Its a really strange book... there are two or more chapters that just randomly appeared in the middle...
I still don't quite get it...
I stopped in the middle... left it down for a while... and restarted it today.... couldn't finish.... it es too weird.
Only read if you have lots of time to spare...
