Why hadn't my dad called me back? It couldn't be that he didn't want to talk to me, that he just didn't care. He was the Monkey Man and I was his Sammy Bear. He had to call me back. For thirteen year old Samanth, life consists of too many unanswered questions. Why has her father not tried to contact her all these years? How could he have allowed her twin sister to drown in the old Clearwater quarry when they were only three? And how can Samantha's mother expect her to accept some man she hardly knows as her new father? Samantha already has a father out there. Somewhere. A fateful decision sets into motion a chain of events and confrontations that will change Samantha's and her family's lives forever. As she sets out to find her father and discover what really happened the day her sister was presumed drowned. Samantha uncovers painful secrets that threaten to destroy the family all over again. Readers will be drawn into Dori Butler's sensitive and suspenseful story of one family's crisis unwittingly brought on by an adolescent girl's search for the truth.
