Description

An Amazon Best Book of the Month • #1 Kids Indie Next List • A Junior Library Guild Selection • Four Starred Reviews

From debut author Janae Marks comes a captivating story full of heart, as one courageous girl questions assumptions, searches for the truth, and does what she believes is right - even in the face of great opposition.

Zoe Washington isn’t sure what to write. What does a girl say to the father she’s never met, hadn’t heard from until his letter arrived on her 12th birthday, and who’s been in prison for a terrible crime?

A crime he says he never committed.

Could Marcus really be innocent? Zoe is determined to uncover the truth. Even if it means hiding his letters and her investigation from the rest of her family. Everyone else thinks Zoe’s worrying about doing a good job at her bakery internship and proving to her parents that she’s worthy of auditioning for Food Network’s Kids Bake Challenge.

But with bakery confections on one part of her mind, and Marcus' conviction weighing heavily on the other, this is one recipe Zoe doesn’t know how to balance. The only thing she knows to be true: Everyone lies.

"When Marcus tells Zoe he is innocent, and her grandmother agrees, Zoe begins to learn about inequality in the criminal justice system, and she sets out to find the alibi witness who can prove his innocence." (Publishers Weekly, "An Anti-Racist Children's and YA Reading List")

Don't judge based on rumors

This book was very relatable, and being a true Bostonian made me ecstatic to see where this book took place. Zoe, did a great job getting her father out of prison.

A very good story, especially for this time...

The performance was wonderful. The story was well written and contained appropriate social topics for today.

Fantastic story!!!

I love this book! What a fantastic story about fighting for independence, knowledge, and justice! Zoe is at odds with her mom about getting to know her birth father, who has been in prison since before her birth. With the help of her grandma and former best friend, Zoe hunts down the truth. So many great themes and characters- and a cool playlist!

sweet story with sour untruths

what a cute story of a girl trying to free her innocent bio dad from prison. however , mixed with the lies of systemic racism, the story takes a preachy turn. would have been a great story if it hadn't tried to be too woke.
