While eleven-year-old Cara is at a sleepover, a fire engulfs her house-with tragic consequences. No one will tell Cara exactly what happened that terrible morning; all she can do is grieve her mother and sister. But her father becomes withdrawn, and her best friend, Marlee, tires of waiting for her to feel better. Cara is not even sure she has God anymore. She is alone with her memories until she receives a phone call for her mother's old business, which gives her an idea-and, finally, something to look forward to.
