    Noga is almost 12 years old and she has everything. Wonderful parents, a smart, supportive older sister, great friends, and abeautiful extended family that includes grandma, grandpa,aunts and uncles, who are sometimes annoying, and sometimesnot, as in all families.

    When Noga’s sister is diagnosed with a serious illness, the whole household is turned on its head, with doctor’s tests, appointments, fears, doubts and bad moods. Noga has to learnto cope with a sister who was hit by the “evil creature”, as she calls the illness.
    At the same time, Noga, together with her friends, deals with the trials of youth – a disappointing first love, a class queen who is not very nice, and a first kiss.
