10-year-old Lola and her Momma have always been a team of two. It hasn't always been easy for Lola, being one of the only kids she knows with just one parent around. And lately she's been feeling incomplete, like there's a part of herself that she can't know until she knows her dad. And when a school assignment encourages kids in her class to imagine themselves as they would be if their life circumstances were different, Lola thinks it's time to learn more about the Australian father who was deported before she was born.
But Momma is sick, so Lola leans on Kiana, Nick, and Kat as she investigates her father. Still, she can't help but wonder: what will happen — to Lola, to Momma, to their team of two — if she finds him? From the critically acclaimed author of Mascot comes this heartfelt novel, perfect for fans of John David Anderson and Cammie McGovern, about a girl searching for the meaning of family.
