After a terrorist attack kills Dani's aunt and unborn cousin, life in Argentina crumbles. In order to escape a country that is sinking under their feet, Dani and her family move to the United States. It's supposed to be a fresh start, but when you're living in a cramped apartment, your father is growing more angry by the day, and you're going to high school where the classes are in another language—and not everyone is friendly—life in America is not all it's cracked up to be. Dani misses her old friends, her Life, Before. How can she heal when life will never be the same again?
