A younger sister has a difficult time adjusting to life after her older sister has a mental breakdown

Stop pretending. Right this minute. I'm your sister. Don't you tell me. You don't know me.

When her older sister has a shocking and unexpected mental breakdown, Cookie is left behind to cope with a family torn apart by grief and friends who turn their backs on her. But worst of all is the loss of her big sister, her confidante, her best friend, who has gone someplace no one can reach. Inspired by Sonya's own true story, this novel explores the chilling landscape of mental illness, revealing glimmers of beauty and of hope along the way. It's an intense and brutally honest account, told in succession of powerful poems that take us deep into the cyclone of the narrator's emotions: grief, anger, guilt, resentment, horror, and ultimately, acceptance.

"A haunting novel. The poems have a cumulative emotional power. They record the personal and translate it into the universal." - ALA Booklist (starred review)

"It celebrates truth-telling, and has a purity and passion that speaks to the heart." - The Boston Globe

"Unpretentious. Accessible. Deeply felt." - SLJ
