For forever, Didi has had to be the best at anything her father demanded of her—the fastest runner, the champion of chess tournaments, able to take down a deer with a bow and arrow at a dead sprint. If she isn't, he takes away food. Clothes. His "love." Though he does love her—he says he does—it's why he pushes her. To be ready. Prepared. For anything. Ready to . . .

Didi is terrified of what he may one day ask her to do . . .

But Didi might be more prepared than her father ever expects.

As powerful as Speak, Educated, and The Glass Castle, this tour de force seems nearly impossible to believe, if it weren't already drawn from a true story—the author's own.
