Lu's father has been gone for a while - so, when her mother fails to return from a vacation, she has a struggle to keep life for herself and her little sister as normal as possible.

With bills to pay, a household to run and school work to complete, the odds seem stacked against her. When Lu finds herself falling for her best friend's brother, maybe that's one complication too many?

Full of passion and pain, this is a compelling story of determination, loyalty, love and the complexity of human relationships. It manages to be both heartbreaking and uplifting. A great addition to any young adult collection.
