SummaryAdd a Summary
Thyme is eleven years old and leaving behind her life in San Diego to travel to New York City with her family. They are taking her little brother, Val, short for Valerian, to a cancer trial. He's five years old and has neuroblastoma which is a kind of cancer that attacks the nerves. He's in remission after chemotherapy, but this cancer medicine trial could help prevent the cancer from coming back. Thyme is trying to be a good sister, helping her family to earn time for her jar to spend on what she really wants. She's keeping that a secret, though, because what she really wants is to go back to San Diego. Can she possibly earn enough time to persuade her parents to head back early? How long is this cancer trial going to last, anyway? Can Thyme find a way to balance her daily life in New York while still yearning for home?
