Anderson has done it again, this time giving us a realistic portrayal of someone dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and how it affects those around them. Hayley Kincain has been taking care of her father after he comes home Iraq. Her father Andy, running from his demons, has been homeschooling her while they travel across the country for his job as a truck driver. After he returns to his childhood home to offer Hayley more stability, she is enrolled in public school while his PTSD gets worse. However, instead of focusing on school, Hayley spends her time trying to hold her father together. The story comes to a dramatic climax that will shock readers while offering them hope for Hayley and Andy. Check Our catalog
