Feeling somehow to blame for her father’s disappearance, thirteen-year old Jennifer Bannon struggles to hang onto her dream that he will return and they can be a family again – a dream that doesn’t include her mother’s new boyfriend, nights of looking after her little sister or a grade nine year that is rapidly going down the toilet.
Finally – after two years of waiting – Jennifer learns that her father is back in town, and suddenly the dream seems within reach. However, hope quickly turns to horror when Jennifer witnesses an event that threatens to tear apart her family and perhaps destroy the life of someone she loves. Will Jennifer be able to unravel the mystery in time or will keeping a secret turn deadly?
