Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alone at ninety foot review When I read the very 1st paragraph of this book I then knew that it was going to be a good book. Poor Pam is trying to deal with the death of her mother and her baby sister April. And being an only child and not really being able to talk to people about it can be hard. Find out how she does it!!

Read from the Book

Yes, that is the problem. That's the only problem. I want my mom back. I want her to knock at my bedroom door and come walking in. I want her to tell me to get my homework done. I want to go with her for a walk in the canyon, up the old logging trails where every step on the thick forest floor is a new adventure. Sometimes I get so, so mad at her for doing this to me.
