Autumn Dawn has learned to deal with her dyslexia and her life is starting to look better, but a horrible accident threatens to change everything. When her mother and brother are crossing a street, they are accidentally hit by a car. Autumn' s little brother is unharmed, but her mother ends up in intensive care. Autumn' s father, who had walked away from his family and left them to fend for themselves, is now back in their lives and trying to make amends. When Autumn's mom is released from the hospital, she still needs help, so Autumn's dad moves back home. Issues such as dyslexia, parental separation, young love, forgiveness, and trust—which are also prevalent in Native communities—are seen from the perspective of a teen living on an Indian reservation. • This is the third and final book about Native teen Autumn Dawn, preceded by Nowhere to Hide and Autumn's Dawn.
