In one terrible night, Janey's world goes from her perfect loving family to the bright lights of the hospital. Her parents are dead, killed by a drunk driver, and her grandfather and great-aunt are to become her new family. She and her little sister, YoYo, are orphans. But almost worse is the fact that five-year-old YoYo seems happy to be an orphan, and her great-aunt is more concerned with suing the drunk driver than with her parents' deaths. Janey decides that its up to her to keep her parents' spirit alive and not let YoYo forget their real family.
