"You have leukemia." Those were the last words Jill expected to hear when she went to her doctor after fainting. But it's true.

Suddenly Jill is in the hospital facing painful test and chemotherapy. Everyone treats her differently now. Her family acts like she's a fragile child, and often keeps secrets from her because they think she can't handle the truth. She feels like an outcast at school. Her little sister even runs away because Jill and her illness get all the attention.

To add to her struggle, sometimes Jill's medication makes her feel worse--not better. Jill must force herself to gather together all of her strength. It's a matter of life and death.
