When Vicki's father is laid off from his job, everything changes. Her family moves to a city apartment, and Vicki has to forge a new path at her urban school. Worst of all, one night her depressed father simply disappears. Vicki soon finds herself living a double life--fine on the outside, anything "but" fine on the inside--and that leads to a moral dilemma she's ultimately forced to confront.

Review quote

"Mazer traces the ungluing of a suburbanite family in this emotionally taut book narrated by middle-schooler Vicki Marnet. . . . Often poignant journal entries add up to a candid portrayal of how a teen's life can change overnight."--"Publishers Weekly" (10/17/05, starred review)
