A classmate commits suicide and Kana must face the reason.  Some friends had mistreated the girl, but what did that have to do with Kana? Her parents want her to reflect on her behavior, so they ship her off to her mother’s ancestral home in Japan for the summer where she will surely learn firsthand about “not fitting in.” Then Kana receives news of another tragic loss at home. What must she do to help herself and her classmates come face to face with the causes these senseless deaths?
