For ages 10+. Feeling somehow to blame for her father's absence, thirteen-year-old Jennifer Bannon struggles to hang on to her dream that he will return and they can be a family again -- a dream that doesnt include her mother's new boyfriend, nights of looking after her little sister or a ninth grade year that is rapidly going down the toilet. Finally -- after two years of waiting -- Jennifer learns that her father is back in town, and suddenly the dream seems within reach. However, hope quickly turns to horror when Jennifer witnesses an event that threatens to tear apart her family and perhaps destroy the life of someone she loves. Will Jennifer be able to unravel the mystery in time, or will keeping a secret turn deadly?
