Twelve-year-old Fern feels invisible. She’s starting middle school, and with it come all the usual challenges. Her dad is always busy planning how to increase traffic to the family business. Her Mom is constantly going off to meditate. Her sister, Sarah, who’s taking a “gap year” after high school, is too busy finding ways not to work. Her brother, Holden, is too focused on his new “friend” to pay attention to her. And then there’s Charlie: three years old, a “surprise” baby, and the center of everyone’s world. If it wasn’t for Ran, Fern’s best and oldest friend, there would be nowhere to turn. Ran is always calm, always positive. His mantra “All will be well” is soothing in a way that nothing else seems to be. And when Ran says it, Fern can almost believe. But when their lives are unexpectedly turned upside down, Fern feels more alone than ever and responsible for the event that wrenches the family apart. All will not be well. Or at least, all will never be the same.
