For fans of The Thing About Jellyfish and Counting by 7s comes critically acclaimed author Caela Carter’s third middle grade novel—a touching and poignant story that explores the bonds of family and the strength that comes from knowing your history.
Alma has everything she needs, except answers to her questions.
Her mother won’t tell her about her beloved stepfather, Adam, who is suddenly gone this summer. Or about life in Portugal, where her parents met. Not even about her father, who Alma cannot find, no matter how many graveyards she searches with her best friend, Julia.
Then Alma’s mother shocks her by moving them both to Lisbon, the vibrant city where her father grew up.
There Alma discovers she has more family than she could have imagined, and she hopes Portugal holds the answers she’s been searching for.
But what if finding out the truth is more complicated than she bargained for?
