Sometimes Carrie Blake feels she just can't stand  life's problems or pain. At fifteen, she's had  leukemia for three years, and although the disease is  in remission, she's never sure when things might  change. Her parents, whose bitter divoce has left  Carrie feeling torn between them, don't seem to  understand how much harder they make her daily  life.

When Carrie meets Keith Gardner at a  cancer support group, everything seems brighter.  Keith and his loving supportive family are  wonderful to Carrie. Then Keith's illness worsens and he  knows he can no longer fight off dying. Armed with  love of family and friends, Keith chooses to  participate in a hospice program, which allows him to  remain at home instead of in the hospital. Carrie  feels helpless as she watches Keith slip away. Will  Keith's courage help Carrie to face her own  uncertain future?

From the Paperback edition.
