Description

Victoria Parker knew her dad's behavior toward her was a little unusual, but she convinced herself everything was fine--until she found herself locked out of the house at 3:00 a.m., surrounded by flashing police lights. Now, dumped into a crowded, chaotic foster home, Victoria has to tiptoe around her domineering foster mother, get through senior year at a new school, and somehow salvage her college dreams . . . all while keeping her past hidden. But some secrets won't stay buried--especially when unwanted memories make Victoria freeze up at random moments and nightmares disrupt her sleep. Even worse, she can't stop worrying about her stepsister Sarah, left behind with her father. All she wants is to move forward, but how do you focus on the future when the past won't leave you alone?

Review quote

"This work of fiction, born of a searing moment in the lives of too many young girls, will get under your skin. Barthelmess's story arrives right on time with a character who is trembling, yet defiant." --Nikki Grimes, 2017 Winner of the Children's Literature Legacy Award and author of the best-selling Bronx Masquerade
