Summary
After her disabled, painkiller-addicted father suffers a stroke, fifteen-year-old Lou must relocate from Alberta to Victoria to live with her mother Zoe, a successful novelist who abandoned Lou at birth and showed no interest in her until she was twelve. As Lou struggles to find her bearings and figure out why her mom left her all those years ago, she is convinced the answers lie in Zoe's fiction, but when Lou's grandmother, Heather, turns up at a book reading, Lou realizes she may have misjudged her mother
Summary
Fifteen-year-old Lou is forced to leave Alberta and stay with the mother she has never known. Lou is overflowing with anger and hurt and is determined to find the reason why her mother abandoned her.
