Just one big happy family...
That's the way Preston Scott would have described his all-American family. His parents seemed to have everything, including the ideal marriage. But then their perfect life started to unravel. Mr. and Mrs. Scott began to fight - vicious, hurtful, drawn-out battles that went on day after day. Finally one day Mrs. Scott moved out. And that's when Preston's nightmare began...
Now, three years later, Preston's dad is getting out of prison, and Preston is no closer to coming to terms with his feelings about him. Because how can you forgive your father for killing someone...when that someone was your mother?
Here is Preston's searing true story about upheaval, growth, faith ... and the power of love.
This unforgettable novel is a fictionalized account based on the words of the boy who experienced these events firsthand.
"Impossible to put down . . . a stunning novel."
