How would you carry on with your life if your past depends on a lie? Another novel in both verse and writing from #1 New York Times top rated writer, Ellen Hopkins.
For whatever length of time that she can recall, it’s been simply Ariel and Dad. Ariel’s mother vanished when she was a child. Father says home is wherever both of them are, yet Ariel is presently seventeen and following quite a while of new flats, new schools, and new confronts, all she needs is to put down a few roots. Muddling things are Monica and Gabe, both of whom have blended an alternate sort of longing.
Maya’s a young person who’s keep running from an oppressive mother directly into the arms of a more seasoned man she wants to trust. In any case, now she’s segregated with a child in transit, and life’s getting more confounded than Maya ever could have envisioned.
Ariel and Maya’s lives impact surprisingly when Ariel’s mom appears out of nowhere with wild allegations: Ariel wasn’t relinquished. Her dad seized her fourteen years prior.
What is Ariel expected to accept? Is it conceivable Dad’s woven her whole history into an embroidered artwork of falsehoods? How might she pick between the mother she’s been instructed to doubt and the father who has dealt with her everything these years?
