Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Sixteen-year-old Jo must decide whether to trust her estranged father or the grandparents who raised her but hid the truth about the way her mother died when Jo was only two"-- Provided by publisher.
Johanna lost her mom in a car accident, and her father went AWOL when Johanna was just a baby. She is being raised by her grandparents who never talk about their daughter, her mother Mandy. When Robert Newsome, Johanna's father, comes back, he brings memories and pictures of Mandy. But a tragic car accident didn't kill Mandy-- it was Johanna, who at two years old, accidentally shot her own mother with an unsecured gun. Now she's trying to sort through the return of her absentee father, her grandparents' lies, her part in her mother's death. Can Johanna ever find a way to forgive herself?
