Georgia Tate never knew her mother, and what she knows of her father from their one holiday together isn't good. Her grandparents have raised her from babyhood, so Georgia is devastated when her beloved Nana suddenly dies and her grandfather sends her to live with her father. This story is about more than an account of the abuse she experiences; it is an ode to family, the mercy of strangers, and the possibility of hope and healing.
