The beautiful cherub Manda Bear and Papa develop a seemingly unbreakable bond, as Papa is always there for her. But as Amanda’s coming of age journey leads her into adolescence, the precocious teenager becomes troubled. Amanda’s parents attempt to deal with rebellious behavior that eventually lands her in jail, and she begins to isolate herself from all who love her. But when Amanda disappears without a trace, her family’s once-happy world is turned upside down.

In this compelling tale, as a frantic search for Amanda begins, her grandfather must learn to trust that all he has taught his beloved granddaughter in her younger years can somehow save her from herself in adulthood – and allow her to fulfill her true destiny.
