(From the publisher):
Me and Daddy. Daddy and me. We were a family. For as long as I could remember, it had always been the two of us, alone together, comfortable and close. And always moving. I remember each of our apartments in many different cities and towns. Yet for all of my memories, I still couldn't remember my mother. She died in a car accident when I was four. And that was all I knew about her, not another word -- not even a picture.
Something was wrong. It began with my birth certificate -- my only link with my mother. Then, an overheard conversation: "Tell Terri the truth," my father was warned, "she's asking questions." What was the truth? Why were we moving all the time? Were we running away from something or someone? Was it possible my mother wasn't dead after all?
As thirteen-year-old Terri Mueller struggles to find out about the mother she doesn't remember, and tries to understand the father she's always trusted and adored, she finds herself torn between the two people who love her most in the world.
