Description

For Paula Herman, 11 going on 12, life is pretty straightforward - until the summer her mother decides to move to Edmonton. There Paula begins to unravel the mystery of her past and things begin to get complicated. Why does her mother refuse to talk about it? What has happened to the handsome man in the photograph - the man she knows must be her father? Why is his name Popowich when hers is Herman?

The deeper Paula goes into solving the mystery, the more tangled her life becomes - until running away seems the only solution. Or is it?
