But she has her own reasons for keeping the world at arm’s length. When Rae finds out what they are, it seems like she and Lettie could help each other.But how long can a friendship last when it’s based on secrets?Tender, funny, heartbreaking-A Million Things is a story of grief and resilience, told with eloquent simplicity.
