Sunnie's life hasn't been easy.  But now it is just way too hard.  Her older sister has died in a fire.  Her mother can't cope and barely gets out of bed anymore.  Her dad is drinking to stop his pain.  And Sunnie is trying to help both of them.  Then it shows up.  A letter mixed in among the bills and junk mail.  A letter written on yellow paper.  A letter from her dead sister.  Sunnie assumes the letter was written before Jazz was killed but when she finally gets up enough courage to open it, she can't believe what it says.  Jazz is still alive and is coming home.  Can this really be happening?  Can Jazz really be alive?  And what will happen with her parents when their favorite child returns?
