Description

"I've got seven days to come clean to my new dad. Seven days to tell the truth..."For sixteen-year-old Tiffany Sly, life hasn't been safe or normal for a while. Losing her mom to cancer has her a little bit traumatized and now she has to leave her hometown of Chicago to live with the biological dad she's never known.Anthony Stone is a rich man with four other daughters--and rules for every second of the day. Tiffany tries to make the best of things, but she doesn't fit into her new luxurious, but super-strict, home--or get along with her standoffish sister London. The only thing that makes her new life even remotely bearable is the strange boy across the street. Marcus McKinney has had his own experiences with death, and the unexpected friendship that blossoms between them is the only thing that makes her feel grounded.But Tiffany has a secret. Another man claims he's Tiffany's real dad--and she has only seven days before he shows up to demand a paternity test and the truth comes out. With her life about to fall apart all over again, Tiffany finds herself discovering unexpected truths about her father, her mother and herself, and realizing that maybe family is in the bonds you make--and that life means sometimes taking risks.

Review quote

"Debut author Davis takes an unflinching approach to racism, religion, emotional abuse, and mental illness. Tiffany's circumstances are nightmarish, but the narrative isn't weighed down, in large part because of her integrity, passion, and refusal to be self-pitying."-Publishers Weekly"Davis' debut novel is an honest, funny, and captivating examination of race, socio-economics, mental health, and family...A dynamic and honest coming-of-age novel with universal appeal that will especially speak to black girls questioning their place in the world." -Kirkus Reviews"This debut grabbed me from the very beginning, and kept the hits coming till the very end."-B&N Teen Blog"This #OwnVoices YA novel delivers moving, realistic, and fully-developed characters that you'll feel deeply connected to from the very first page. Don't miss Dana L. Davis' lovable debut." -HelloGiggles"The novel tackles a wide range of important issues - racism, mental health, religion, class, family - through the lens of a spirited and tough protagonist you'll fall in love with." -Bustle"A strong choice for most YA collections." -School Library Journal
