"First published in the United Kingdom in 2015 by David Fickling Books"--Copyright page.
Life has just become very complicated for seventeen-year-old Katie; her father walked out a year ago, her mother is stressed out, her brother is a "special needs" teenager, and she is caring for the maternal grandmother she has never met, who is suffering from Alzheimer's--and Katie has a secret of her own that she cannot reveal.

Yes! submitted by manz on February 14, 2017, 12:58pm A great book. I loved reading about these three strong women. It was comforting to read about these not-so-perfect ladies -- keeping their secrets, trying to deal with a mystery family history, and still all get along with each other. I cried at the end.
