There are three beautiful blond Babcock sisters: gorgeous and foulmouthed Adrienne, observant and shy Vanessa, and the youngest and best loved, Marie. Their mother is ill with leukemia, and the girls spend a lot of time with her at a Mexican clinic across the border from their San Diego home so she can receive alternative treatments. Vanessa is the middle child, a talented pianist who is trying to hold her family together despite the painful loss they all know is inevitable.

In search of the perfect story to put a human face on a tragedy for his newspaper, my dad will fly into the eye of the storm. And now he's heading to Ukraine, straight into the aftermath of a deadly earthquake. I don't want him to leave. I don't want to spend the week alone in a silent house with my mother, whose classically Russian reserve has built a wall between us that neither of us knows how to tear down. But I don't tell him this. I don't say stay. I think I'm holding it together okay - until the FBI comes knocking on our door.
