14-year-old Jenna Samuels is having a very bad 8th grade year. Her single mother spends all day in bed. Dad vanished when she was eight. Her 16-year-old brother, Casey, tries to hold the family together by working two jobs - which is difficult, as he's stoned all the time. To make matters worse, Jenna is sick. When she collapses one day, Casey tries to race her to the hospital in their beat-up Prius and crashes instead. Jenna wakes up in the ER to find Casey beside her. Before long, Jenna figures out that Casey didn't survive the accident at all.

This is a funny mystery with a little too much going on, but it's still a good read.
