“Knowles plunks the reader down amidst a set of warm, loveable, flawed characters who have to deal with the unimaginable. As a middle child, Fern feels adrift while her busy family tumbles in different directions. When tragedy strikes, through Fern's eyes we experience the unraveling that can happen to any loving family confronted with a huge loss. Knowles takes the reader's hand and deftly winds through the maze of grief and shows how navigating with our hearts will always lead us back home.”
-- Jane Knight, Bear Pond Books of Montpelier, Montpelier, VT


Description
Twelve-year-old Fern feels invisible. Her dad is forever planning how to boost business at the family restaurant. Her mom is constantly going off to meditate. Her sister, Sarah, who s taking a year off after high school, is too busy finding ways not to work, and her brother Holden is totally focused on his new friend. And then there s Charlie: three years old, a surprise baby, and the center of everything. If it wasn t for her friend Ran, there would be nowhere to turn. Ran is always calm, always positive. His mantra, All will be well, calms like nothing else. When he says it, Fern can almost believe. But when their lives are suddenly turned upside down, Fern feels more alone than ever, and responsible for the devastating event that wrenches the family apart. All will not be well. Or at least, all will never be the same."
