A very moving story about an average family. Polly is a photographer who is photographing a "medium" while she conducts her "seances", her husband Ivan is an astronomer. Charlie their 8 year old son is enamoured with bugs and insects and has a growing menagery of critters in the basement. Charlie's interest and knowledge of dinosaurs is unlike that of other children his age. Amanda, the daughter is an 11 year old gymnast who's life revolves around the sport. Often winning competitions and the object of much jealousy of both her friends and other competitors to the sport. A sudden tragedy turns this family upside down when Amanda becomes terminally ill. This tragedy consumes Amanda's entire world and that of her family. This is a wrenching and compassionate look at how this family survives such tragedy.

I love the last line on the bookcover that says "When it comes to love, we are all....
AT RISK"!!

Thanks cestmoi, this was a good one!! :o)
