Summary

(Beacham's Guide to Literature for Young Adults)

Anyone who enjoys suspense and piecing together a mystery will enjoy this book. Its central plot deals with kidnapping by the non-custodial parent. Bit by bit Terri discovers the answers to her questions. Why does she move so frequently? What were the circumstances of her mother's accidental death? Why does her father refuse to tell her anything about her mother? She does not even have a picture of her. Readers will want to find out how she adjusts to finding out the truth about her father and what happens when she meets her mother and grandparents.

This is a book about a very good relationship between a father and daughter with no other relatives that she knows about. Even at the end, after the deception has been discovered, Terri goes back to her father who gave up everything and everyone to keep her.
