by Dianna Dann

A haunting coming-of-age story of depression, alcoholism, suicide, and hope...spiced with a touch of wit.

"Camelia...isn't here."
"What would Camelia think about that?"
I wanted to tell Dr. Crazy that I couldn't be bothered with what Camelia would think, or want, or do. But every time I practiced the speech I crawled further inside what was left of my wilted, frayed cocoon and tried to block out the light. I'd betrayed her. I'd betrayed us both.

April MacMillan is drunk, standing on the roof of Three River Terrace seven stories up, ready to jump to her death, when she remembers Camelia.
Will the truth about Camelia save her? Or will it lead her back to the roof?
