Starting middle school brings all the usual challenges - until the unthinkable happens, and Fern and her family must find a way to heal. Twelve-year-old Fern feels invisible. It seems as though everyone in her family has better things to do than pay attention to her.
Mum helps Dad run "Harry's," the family restaurant; Sarah is taking a gap year after high school, and Holden pretends that Mum and Dad and everyone else doesn't know he's gay, even as he fends off bullies at school.
If it wasn't for Ran, Fern's calm and positive best friend, there'd be nowhere to turn.
Ran's mantra, "All will be well," is soothing in a way that nothing else seems to be. And when Ran says it, Fern can almost believe it's true.
But then tragedy strikes - and Fern feels not only more alone than ever, but also responsible for the accident that has wrenched her family apart.
All will not be well. Or at least all will never be the same.
