by Norma Fox Mazer, and published by Morrow
Winner Blurb: 

Mazer's belief in fiction as a way to deal with "a world where people face troubles, but act to help themselves" is sensitively demonstrated in this story of fifteen-year-old Rachel.  Her life of ordinary teenage concerns is made extraordinary, when she learns of her grandfather Izzy's impending death.  As her family gathers around Izzy, Rachel comes to understand the true strength of loving relationships.
