Her father is rarely in the picture since their mother passed away. Up until now, everything in Sara's life was easy and made sense. Up until now. The summer is confusing. Things just aren't right anymore. The only thing she understands is her love for her brother, Charlie. But, even on Charlie's needier days, life is hard to understand. Before the end of this day, everything will make sense again for Sara.
