Barbara Babie Bunting is constantly mistaken for her sisters, but she's determined t to end up like her family. She doesn't plan to stick around Shallow Pond after graduation, and she certainly won't be ruined by a broken heart. That is, until fellow orphan Zach Faraday walks into the picture, and Babie can't deny their chemistry. When her oldest sister, Annie, comes down with a mysterious illness-initially dismissed as love sickness -Babie and Zach start investigating what exactly killed the girls' mother and why their late father became so consumed by grief. What they find changes everything.
