With the help of Steve&rsquo:s personal care assistant (and family friend) Ike Tobin attends to both her photography and to Steve as his brain unexpectedly fails right along with his body.

Kirstin CronnMills has a singular way of getting inside characters heads and making their stories come to life. This book will make you cry.' &mdash:Bill Konigsberg awardwinning author of The Music of What Happens? 'A provocative unflinching and emotionallycomplex deep dive into mortality and loss while Tobin and her father grapple with almost unfathomable decisions. A wrenching and empathetic look at the tumultuous waters and seemingly bottomless grief that can interrupt an otherwise placid life.' &mdash:Amanda MacGregor Teen Librarian Toolbox 'This book has heart and empathy as vast and deep as the Great Lake on which it's set.' &mdash:Geoff Herbach awardwinning author of Stupid Fast and Hooper 'Parallel heartbreaking threads weave powerfully together. . . . :Strong characterizations . . . enliven the narrative providing rich context to a family in crisis. The dramatic discussionworthy ending adds a provocative righttodie element that will stay with readers long after the last page.' &mdash:Booklist&ldquo:Every so often a book comes along that is so sharp so moving so real and so good you want to press it into everyones hands and say Read this! READ THIS!&rdquo: —:Courtney Summers author of Cracked Up to Be on Beautiful Music for Ugly Children &ldquo:A kind and satisfyingly executed portrait.&rdquo: —:Kirkus Reviews
