Emily's life is turned upside-down by a visit from the UPS man.

After Emily's aunt dies, Emily learns that everything she has always believed is a lie, and her world crumbles. Forced to face the fact that her mother is not who she thought she was, Emily tries to find the truth about her past and make sense of her future. Turning to graffiti and vandalism as a way to deal with her anger, she comes to realize that there is more to a family than shared DNA.

Also available in Spanish.

"Employs the first-person, present-tense narrative to good effect. Recommended." - CM Magazine

"Harvey has written a fast-paced and interesting novel." - Resource Links

"The interest level is high and the reading level is easier than many books written for the intended audience, so it's a good choice for reluctant readers." - KLIATT

"Very good and an easy read...I recommend it." - TeensReadToo.com

"With short chapters geared toward reluctant teen readers, this fast-paced text offers unflinching coverage of hot-button topics such as suicide and teen pregnancy." - The Horn Book Guide

"This contemporary theme in less than 100 pages with eye catching cover art will appeal to teenage reluctant readers." - Puget Sound Council for Reviewing Children's Media
