Sylvie the Second
It's another hospital trip for Sylvie, as part of the support crew for her crazy sister, Calamity Cate. An overdose, this time. As usual, it seems like the family is so caught up in Cate's drama that Sylvie goes unnoticed. Invisible. Always coming second. Not any more. Sylvie makes herself noticed, but to the wrong people, and with painful consequences. YA fiction that tackles some difficult issues.
