Miranda Greene is happy to be home after spending the year in England. Although she'll miss the friends she made there, the year was a tough one -- especially since her father was killed in a car accident. Miranda's friends have changed while she was away. Her best friend has a new best friend who thinks Miranda should get over all this British stuff. Miranda meets Vivi Gold who has also lost a parent. Vivi's mother died of cancer. Why does everything have to change? Why can't we control things around us? These are questions that Miranda and Vivi need to come to terms with.
