When Dora, Elena's older sister, is diagnosed with depression and has to be admitted to the hospital, Elena can't seem to make sense of their lives anymore. At school, the only people who acknowledge Elena are Dora's friends and Jimmy Zenk, who failed at least one grade and wears black every day of the week. And at home, Elena's parents keep arguing with each other.

Elena will do anything to help her sister get better and get their lives back to normal, even when the responsibility becomes too much to bear.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Anna Francesca | 2/15/2014

    " The premise was interesting, but I just didn't feel enough of a connection to the characters to see this as being more than a basic book about depression and a family's experience with it. I liked the author note at the end. Still, this book just didn't seem to GO anywhere. For people with no experience in mental illness, this could be a good introduction, but I'd rather direct a reader to Sonia Sones. "
