When Taylor is just nine years old, her brother Corey becomes terminally ill. During this time she writes a journal that mirrors her family's journey through treatment, separation, coming to terms with a terminal illness, and the eventual loss of a sibling. It is a touching story of relationships and personal growth, which encourages discussion of many important issues faced by young adults. The novel - Susan White's first - won the young adult category of the Writers's Federation of Nova Scotia 2010 Atlantic Writing Competition and the 2012 Ann Connor Brimer Award!

"A touching, powerful story of family, loss, and the healing power of narrative. Taylor's voice is true as she weaves microscopic detail in the chronicle of her day to day life in a year she will never forget. Readers will root for her, smile with her and be reminded of empathy, love and need for community". -- Sheree Fitch, author of Pluto's Ghost.
