9780064470940: What Daddy Did

Just One Big Happy Family...

That's the way Preston Scott would have described his all-American family. His parents seemed to have everything, including the ideal marriage. But then their perfect life started to unravel. Mr. and Mrs. Scott began to. fight-vicious, hurtful, drawn-out battles that went on day after day. Finally one day Mrs. Scott moved out. And that's when Preston's nightmare began...

Now, three years later, Preston's dad is getting out of prison, and Preston is no closer to coming to terms with his feelings about him. Because how can you forgive your father for killing someone...when that someone was your mother?

Here is Preston's searing true story about upheaval, growth, faith ... and the power of love.

No one has an inkling that handsome, athletic, and talented Preston Scott is carrying a terrible secret: His father was imprisoned three years ago. Now Mr. Scott is coming home to live with Preston and his little brother, Tyler—and Preston has yet to come to terms with his feelings about him. Because how can you forgive your father for killing someone . . . when that someone was your mother? This unforgettable novel is a fictionalized account based on the words of the boy who experienced these events firsthand. "Impossible to put down . . . a stunning novel." —V.

About the Author:

Neal Shusterman was born and raised in the heart of Brooklyn, New York, where he began writing at an early age as a creative alternative to stickball. At the age of eight, he sent his first story (something about a giant squid devouring Chicago) to E. B. White for approval. E. B. White told him that there were, in fact, no giant squid in Chicago, but he should keep writing anyway. He did.

Mr. Shusterman graduated from the University of California at Irvine with a degree in psychology. His first novel, The Shadow Club, was published in 1988 and received the International Reading Association Children's Choice Award. His other novels include Dissidents and Speeding Bullet. In addition to novels, Mr. Shusterman enjoys writing stage plays, screenplays, and music. He lives with his wife and son in Los Angeles, where he spends too much time writing and not enough time vacationing.

About the Author:

Neal Shusterman is the New York Times bestselling and award-winning author of Bruiser, which was a Cooperative Children's Book Center (CCBC) choice, a YALSA Popular Paperbacks for Young Adults pick, and on twelve state lists; The Schwa Was Here; and the Unwind dystology, among many other books. He lives in California with his four children.
