Friendship, parties, boys! Most of Jenna’s wishes are typical for her age. But only most of them. Jenna’s mother has cancer. And in her pocket, Jenna keeps a note that reads: “If you die, mum, I will kill myself.” Otherwise she refuses to talk about the sickness, even if her otherwise vivacious mother says “It won’t go away ifwe don’t talk about it.”
