‘It’s tough living in the shadow of a dead girl. It’s like living at the foot of a mountain blocking out the sun, and no one ever thinks to say, “Damn, that mountain is big.” Or, “Wonder what’s on the other side?” It’s just something we live with, so big we hardly notice it’s there. Not even when it’s crushing us under its terrible weight.’ (chapter 1)
Miranda Mathison stands on the threshold between death and birth. Still struggling hard to deal with her rebellious sister Alexandra aka Xanda’s untimely death five years ago, Mandy tries to seek solace in the arms of her boyfriend Kamran who leaves her not only pregnant but doesn’t even want to talk to her.
