Thirteen-year-old Casey's mother always said that Casey's sixteen-year-old sister marched to the beat of a different drummer. But it isn't until Briana runs away with an older boy that Casey begins to understand what her mother meant. When Briana returns home alone and pregnant, Casey and her mother try to help Briana come to terms with her options. It was already complicated to think about Briana's choices and then things change suddenly again. When Briana is in a serious accident, Casey's mother sees things one way. Although Casey understands her mother's reaction, she feels she must try to convince her mother to make a different decision. Casey needs to grow up fast and do what she can to maintain Briana's legacy. Will she be able to make her mother understand that there is only one way to accept Briana's gift?

This book is really great. It's a quick read, but it has enough substance to make it a worthwhile read. The situation is sad, but at the end you get a little happiness and hope. You learn a lot about what happens during pregnancy and infants, which is why wait until you hit the tween years to read it. The author speaks with a great and passionate voice. Pick this one up!

Although I read this book 2 years ago I can still remember what the book is about. I can visualize scenes in the book. I can't believe I can still remember the book. This must be a great book if I can still remember it from 2 years ago!

This book was really good. One of her best. It was upsetting because of the position she is put in but I really like how at the end you see happiness in the futur.

Moisture fills her eyes. "I'm pregnant Sissy. I'm a cliche- barefoot and pregnant; with no place else to go."
