Overview

This Isn't about the Money by Sally Warner

One moment Janey is part of an average American family, and the next she's alone in the desert, watching her parents' car burn after a drunk driver swerved into their lane. When Janey wakes up later in the hospital, she finds her face bandaged and learns that her grandfather and great-aunt are to become her new family. She and her little sister, YoYo, are orphans. But almost worse is the fact that five-year-old YoYo is reveling in the spotlight of "poor little orphan" and her great-aunt seems more concerned with suing the drunk driver than with her parents' deaths. Janey decides that it's up to her to keep her parents' spirit alive and not let YoYo forget her real family. Yet as time passes and memories of the accident grow less painful, she gradually sees that her new family loves her as much as her old one, just in a different way.

This book is very good, if you want to read about dealing with death. Two girls are on their way to California when their car gets hit by a drunk driver. They lose both their parents. Throughout the book they face many difficulties of suddenly becoming orphans. This is very real but very sad- so be warned. Some parts got me a little teary but the ending has a good lesson to it.
