Evie Boone just wants to survive high school and keep her sisters safe. When their mother returns home after disappearing for weeks, nothing Evie can do will keep the cops from messing with her plan to lay low. Worse, there's nothing she can do to stop the father who walked out on her and her sisters nine years ago from opening his home to them. As Evie wrestles to salvage her crumbling life, her father and his new family pursue Evie with a gentle love the likes of which she's never known. Are they for real, or is it all an act? Can she ever go back to the life she knew before her mother's arrest? And if she's honest with herself, does she even want to anymore?
