Summary (From the publisher):

From the publisher
"If she dies, I'll die" are the words fifteen-year-old Mia Pearlman writes in her journal the night her mother is diagnosed with cancer. Twelve days later, Mia's mother is dead, and Mia, her older sister, and their father must find a way to live on in the face of sudden, unbearable loss.

For Mia, this means getting through a funeral led by a rabbi who should be in show business; dealing with a social worker who recommends shop therapy; sharing "healthy heart" meals with her father, who seems to be seeing her for the first time; trying to relate to her sister, who knows more about logarithms than makeup application; and developing a crush on Cancer Guy who is actually kind of cute. But mostly, it means carrying the image of her mother with her everywhere, because some kinds of love never die. Still, even in grief there is the chance for new beginnings.
