I read this book and I almost cried. It is about a girl who stays home while her family goes out to a picnic because she is not feeling well. On the way out there all of her family members get into a car accident and they died. So she has to live with her Aunt, Uncle and her spoiled cousin. She faces issues and has a hard time accepting that her family is gone forever. ( )

This is the story of Beth's survival after the death of her family in a car accident, on the way to a staff picnic, an event Beth missed as she was sick. Beth goes to live with her uncle, aunt and same-aged cousin. Strong feelings run between Beth and her cousin, Terri, especially jealousy and anger. Beth suffers from a measure of survivor guilt. Slowly all adjust to the changes and develop into a family together.
