"One misunderstood teen. One eccentric granny. One missing uncle. A coming-of-age story that gets to the heart of one family's secrets. Zoe's straitlaced and narrow-minded parents don't understand her -- they are shocked by her swearing and believe that she's a bad girl. They also want to put Zoe's Granny in a senior's home, despite Zoe's objections. Sure, Granny ha become a bit odd and her memory is spotty, but she's outspoken and funny, and Zoe loves her. Granny still mourns her favourite son, Teddy, who was also a troublemaker, and who died before Zoe was born. Or did he? After a series of disastrous incidents, including a school suspension and a near-death experience, Zoe decides to liberate herself and her grandmother from their respective prisons taking them on an unforgettable journey to Toronto, where Zoe learns the truth about her uncle, and discovers strengths of her own that just might help her find a way back home."--
