Now she can only observe while her family grieve her death in their different ways. Her father, Jack is obsessed with identifying the killer. Her mother, Abigail, flees the family home, desperate to create a different life for herself. And her sister, Lindsay, is discovering the opposite sex with experiences that Susie will never know. Susie is desperate to help them and there might be a way of reaching them...
