General Note
"Moving forward can be so hard when you're left behind"--Cover.
Summer Uzoma's parents went on the run after they were accused of committing a crime, leaving her behind. She has been alternating stays with her friends' families, and secretly visits her old home. But she's fine: she has her skateboard and her bus pass. She just has to turn eighteen in a few weeks and then she'll truly be free. Then a nosy social worker arranges for Summer to be living with her cousin Olu-- someone she hasn't seen in years: a famous singer in Japan last she heard, and not much older than Summer. Olu has her own drama to deal with-- but with her help, can Summer learn to trust again? -- adapted from jacket
