Thirteen-year-old Sunny Skyland feels all alone in the world, desperately clinging to the few memories she has left of her loving family. But when her mom and grandmother died in a car accident, she and her twin sister, Starr, were split up, and Sunny hasnÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t seen or heard from Starr ever since.
SunnyÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s life hasnÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t held much love since she lost her family. One distant relative even abandoned her in an empty apartment. Following that, she became part of Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½the systemÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½, bouncing from one foster home to another. She has been placed with a single woman named Rita, who seems decent enough except for her enthusiasm for healthy food. ThereÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s no junk food of any kind allowed in the entire house, causing a problem for the Twinkie-addicted Sunny. Despite that downside, Sunny canÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t help but start liking Rita. Still, she canÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t shake feeling somewhat incomplete and realizes thereÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s only one thing that can change that - finding Starr.
