Jenna and Jeremy knew their parents' marriage was in trouble. Mom and Dad didn't talk much, and when they did, they had to work really hard to be civil to each other. But no one could have predicted what would come next. The headline read, COLLEGE SHRINK KILLS WIFE, and suddenly everything changed. Now with Mom dead and Dad in jail, Jenna and Jeremy must re-create a life and a family of their own--somehow. Award-winning author Julius Lester tells a heartbreaking story about domestic violence, its devastating effects on a family, and the resilient power of love.
