What if your severely disabled sister were to suddenly die and you suspected that your father had played a role in her death? What if your best friend, a girl you've started to like as more than a friend, thinks your dad can do no wrong? Could she be right? What if she's not? That's life for fifteen-year-old David Burke after his sister, Ivy, dies in a suspicious drowning. David is forced to wrestle with moral questions and the definition of what is right, what is merciful and what can be forgiven. Readers will be pondering the questions this story raises long after they have found out what did happen to Ivy.

This book was really heartbreaking to me. It showed the struggle of living with a severe disability, in this case cerebral palsy, and living with someone with a severe disability. I liked this book because no matter how much David thought he hated Ivy, he always loved her. She was his little sister, after all.
