Meg's sorrow as well as her joy comes pouring out in this perceptive tale."&nbsp- Booklist, starred review

Thirteen-year-old Meg and her sister, Molly, couldn't be more different. Molly is beautiful and popular, and Meg is brainy and introverted. Accepting these differences has always been difficult for Meg. When Molly falls ill, however, Meg must learn not only to accept Molly and her life, but to accept death.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A remarkable story I read this as a child, it was given to me by my sister who read it as a child. It was so incredible I have read it at least 5 times and have lost it now. I am planning on buying another copy just to have it for my kids one day.
