Kelli's world has been turned upside down. Her father and step-mother have died and she is now adjusting to no longer having any family. She begins the process of going through her father's things when she discovers something that turns her world upside down again.
Kelli had always been told that her biological mother and older siblings were killed in a fire in their home. No papers or photographs survived. After the fire, her father took her out to California to begin life anew. But, in her father's safe she finds a few files that contain photographs, newspaper clippings and other papers that do not fit that story. It seems that Kelli is really the missing person, not her mother and older siblings. They are still alive in a small town in Tennessee. So Kelli decides she must go to the town and see what was wrong with her family to make her dad leave them all behind. She arrives in town and tries to keep her true identity hidden. She intends to stay only a week, but soon finds herself being drawn in to the town and her family. Can she face the truth, or will she run from it like her father did?
I really enjoyed reading this book. It had a great plot and interesting characters. This book grabbed me right away and did not let go me go until the end. It is one of the best books I have read in a long time. I would totally recommend this book to be added to your summer reading list.
