Lexile measure:
Alyssa never really noticed the distance between her parents, or that her mom could be down a lot. And even when there was a strain between her parents, everything was going to be fine when Lila Rose, the new baby, arrived. But Lila Rose doesn't survive, nor does Alyssa's parents' marriage. That's when Alyssa decides to make things go her way--even if it hurts.
