Summary
As a teenager, Alexandra "Al" Silber had brilliance, beauty, and talent in spades. But when her beloved father dies after a decade-long battle with cancer Al and her mother are lost in grief, hardly know where to begin with the rest of their lives. Three friends from theatre camp are determined to help out as only drama students know how, and they move in for the duration. Over the course of that winter, the five do battle with everything Death can throw at them, learn (almost) everything about love, and eventually return to the world, altered in different ways by their time in a home by a river. -- adapted from jacket
