Achingly expresses both the need to get away and the need to go home.

Ford’s concise memoir offers an often-painful view into a complicated childhood in a family torn apart by her fathers’ incarceration. He’s the one who showed her unconditional love, who encouraged her. And she finds out his crime was the one that could destroy their relationship. It’s a truly a haunting and powerful book and if you need a stronger endorsement the blurbs range from Glennon Doyle to John Green, Saeed Jones to Laurie Halse Anderson.
