About the Book
Book description

Sixteen-year-old Biz sees her father every day, though he died when she was seven. When he suddenly disappears, she tumbles into a disaster-land of grief and depression from which she must find her way back. In this young adult story, Helena Fox describes love and grief, inter-generational mental illness, and how living with it is both a bridge to someone loved and lost and, also, a chasm. ebook icon Audio book icon
