Jane has lived in the shadow of her little sister Emma's cancer battle for over three years. Not that she was ever in the limelight; it is her sister who is the talented one, a dancer who at ten had been outgrowing her small town teachers' skills. Jane had never resented Emma's talent; it always kept the pressure off her. Now though, Jane's life seems to be a neverending monotony of skipping school, long bus rides to the hospital and hanging out with a boyfriend she doesn't even know why she is with. Nobody really cares that she is stuck in neutral - and she is finding it difficult to care herself
