What does it mean to lay down your life?

Luna has learned a lot in her thirteen years how to skin a rabbit, how to gut a fish, where to pick the perfect wildflowers but it s not enough. When her best friend, Mason, dies, Luna leaves her large family and moves in with Mason s mentally disabled mother, Ruby Day. Caring for her takes a bit more leaning and a lot more patience, but eventually they come to a backwards parenting relationship, working out the glitches and growing closer day by day, as they help one another grieve for Mason. Until the arrival of a conniving aunt who wants Ruby locked away in a mental institution. How can a thirteen-year-old girl stand up to Ruby Day s aunt? What would Mason want her to do? And why is saying good-bye so difficult?"
