From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-10?Erika Gresham's world, as she had always known it, is blown out of the water. Her father and his best friend are arrested for bribery, the press sets up camp outside her home, and her best friend spreads the word at school. Erika's emotional turmoil affects her tennis game, her grades, and her friends. She begins to slide toward self-loathing, lashing out at everyone, but especially her father, whom she can no longer respect. This story focuses on a timely topic in contemporary society, viewed through the eyes of the unwitting victims?the family. Providing realistic situations and conflicts that must be faced head on, the author plots a gigantic emotional rollercoaster ride for the major characters. Readers will be drawn to Erika's self-examinations and her attempts to deal with the sudden demise of her secure world. YAs will find a wealth of issues to discuss in this unsettling, thought-provoking novel.?Jana R. Fine, Clearwater Public Library System, FL
