Publisher's Synopsis

Jiordan's family was never quite like everyone else's, with her father's mood swings, her mother's attempts at normalcy, and her two sisters with a different last name. But on the surface, they fit in. Until the day the FBI came knocking. After that, her father's mood plunged to a dangerous low. After that, there was an investigation and a sentencing in court. After that, her family changed forever. Reckoning with her father's incarceration, Jiordan navigated friends who couldn't quite understand what she was going through, along with the highs and lows of first love. But if her father was gone, why did Jiordan feel like the one disappearing? Recounting her own experiences, poet Jiordan Castle creates a searing YA true-story-in-verse about the challenge to be free when a parent is behind bars.
