Product Overview

"Jamal said only, "Laura..." And I knew, just knew by the rip through my gut and the instant convulsion in my heart, knew by Jamal's uncharacteristically unsmiling face. I knew because Laura always did what I wished I could do."

First cousins Laura and Miles grew up like sisters. Miles thought of Laura as the golden one -- smart, beautiful, rich, and popular -- while Miles considered herself the unwanted one -- an unattractive, underachieving outcast. Laura's suicide shatters Miles and leaves her feeling completely alone, and sets Miles on a dangerous downward spiral. But in the strength Miles finds in herself and in those she didn't believe cared about her, she is able to rebuild her life in unexpected ways.

Rachel Cohn's emotionally powerful new novel views serious issues such as depression, suicide, prescription-drug abuse, and alternative family configurations through the lens of family love and survival.

Praise
"[Cohn's] work is heartbreaking, at times excruciating to read, but it rings with authenticity...The tragedy of teen suicide has been the subject of countless novels, yet rarely has it been discussed with such gritty realism."
"Cohn's slick, upbeat, urban prose intensifies the sharply drawn characters that frame Miles's world...What results isn't just a story about overcoming sorrow, but rather one of a girl raging against the world and herself, waiting for someone to help her make sense of it all."
"While Cohn's characterizations occasionally teeter toward stereotype, the story's evolving relationships keep it compelling enough to propel readers through to its dramatic conclusion."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Antisocial and overweight, Miles has always dreamed of being like her perfect and popular cousin Laura, but when Laura commits suicide, Miles turns to her family for much-needed support to get through her overwhelming feelings of devastation, confusion, and loss. 30,000 first printing.
First Line Once upon a time, there was an uptight collector man named Jim. In the late middle age of his life, Jim decided he wanted a baby with a passion greater even than the obscure Picasso sketch or rare Russian-dynasty Faberge egg he coveted at the elite auctions he frequented.
Annotation Rachel Cohn's dark coming-of-age novel is filled with teen agony, including drug use, emotional pain, and fractured families. Raised practically as sisters, Miles and Laura were complete opposites, Laura beautiful and popular, Miles plump and angry. But when Laura commits suicide, everything changes, and Miles begins going deeper down into pills and sadness. A backdrop of a hot summer, a crush on a best friend, and plenty of humor complete the story.
