Sunny, Diary Two is the sixth book in the California Diaries series and takes the form of a diary written by Vista Private School student Sunny Winslow.

Back Cover Summary[]

Face it, Winslow. Read between the lines.

Dr. Merwin has stopped talking about "good signs".

There are no good signs.

She's not going to get better.


Sunny’s mom isn’t getting better; in fact, her health (along with her mind) is deteriorating quickly.

When Sunny turns to her best friend, Dawn, for support, it seems like all she gets is guilt. It doesn’t help that Dawn seems to connect better with Sunny’s mom than Sunny does, or that her dad is still so absorbed with work that he is never home.

But at least there is one adult whom she can talk to: Dawn’s pregnant stepmom, Carol, and Sunny has a stream of guys knocking at her door to keep her occupied.

But none of that can replace her mom, and if she lets herself think about it, she may not be able to keep going.
