Seventh grader Kay Garber''s happy home is made up of four generations of women: Great Gran Eula; Grandma Margie; Kay''s mother, Karine; and Kay. But on the evening Grandma Margie tells her family she has a lump in her breast, Kay''s world is changed forever.

Struggling with issues of popularity in junior high school, trying to understand her too-perfect mother, dealing with her feelings about friends, and coming to terms with Grandma Margie''s cancer diagnosis and illness, Kay is awhirl with questions that have no easy answers.
