Summary

Summary

After Charlotte's father is kidnapped, she and her mother must overcome their differences and find a way to rescue him in this eloquent, moving portrayal of family from the author of the William C. Morris Award finalist Tell Me Something Real.

In search of the perfect story to put a human face on a tragedy for his newspaper, my dad will fly into the eye of the storm. And now he's heading to Ukraine, straight into the aftermath of a deadly earthquake. I don't want him to leave. I don't want to spend the week alone in a silent house with my mother, whose classically Russian reserve has built a wall between us that neither of us knows how to tear down. But I don't tell him this. I don't say stay.

I think I'm holding it together okay—until the FBI comes knocking on our door. Now it's all I can do to fight off the horrifying images in my head. The quake has left so many orphans and widows, but Mom and I refuse to be counted among them. Whatever it takes to get Dad back, I'll do it. Even if it means breaking a promise . . . or the law.
