Things are kind of falling apart for sixteen-year-old Delilah lately. School's not going so well, and her "sort of" boyfriend isn't really behaving like much of a boyfriend. Now she's just found out that she has to give up her summer to go to Vermont to clean out the house of her estranged grandmother who has recently died. She's not happy about it, but maybe finally, she'll be able to get to the bottom of things with her mother. Eight years ago her mother had a fight with her family, and she and Delilah haven't been back to Vermont since, but her mom won't talk about it. Delilah's summer is about to explode with emotion - new friendships, unexpected romance, answers about her family history, and tests of the bonds between mother and daughter.
