Mick and Jade have been together for three years, most of their time at high school. Although he knows it will be difficult to end things, Mick finally decides that their relationship is over and breaks up with her. That is when he realizes the hardest part will be saying goodbye to Jade's little brother, Gavin, who suffers from severe migraines. Mick's friends suspect that Jade's constant calls for help can't all be genuine, as they always coincide with times Mick is out with someone new. But Mick doesn't believe a four-year-old would fake illness just to help his sister. Could both Mick and his friends be right? This emotionally charged novel explores co-dependency, mental illness and poverty in relation to teens.
