It's tough living in the shadow of a dead girl. . . .

In the five years since her bad-girl sister Xanda's death, Miranda Mathison has wondered about the secret her sister took to the grave, and what really happened the night she died. Now, just as Miranda is on the cusp of her dreams--a best friend to unlock her sister's world, a ticket to art school, and a boyfriend to fly her away from it all--Miranda has a secret all her own.

When two lines on a pregnancy test confirm her worst fears, Miranda is stripped of her former life. She must make a choice with tremendous consequences and finally face her sister's demons and her own.

In this powerful debut novel, stunning new talent Holly Cupala illuminates the dark struggle of a girl who must let go of her past to find a way into her own future.

Rand is dealing with her sister’s tragic death whens she finds out she’s pregnant. Her friends, including the baby’s father, turn against her, and she’s caught between them and her dysfunctional family (including her cruel mother). As she struggles to keep her head above water, she discovers that her sister’s death wasn’t as clear-cut as it seemed before. Nothing exceptional. The only thing of note is that the author is clearly (from her acknowledgements) a committed Christian, but didn’t feel the need to write an over-moralized “Christian” book, but rather a redemptive book with compassion and understanding. Bravo.
