Ruby gets an unexpected birthday present on her 16th birthday. Her dad shows up. Since he left them about 5 years ago, it’s a bit of a shock. In fact, she yells at him and leaves. She’d rather hang out with her four friends, as if nothing has happened. But the following week brings many surprises and secrets. Through the emotional highs & lows, Ruby realized that she must deal with her past or she’ll never move on, no matter how much it hurts. This was a great novel about friendship, forgiveness, and learning from life’s dramas.
