Pete is an eleven-year-old middle school girl who desperately wants to know her biological father. But no one in her family wants to talk about him. When she comes face-to-face with the man, she is surprised to learn that she is from a mixed heritage, and learns the harsh realities of racism.
She also learns firsthand about bullying so destructive that Pete begins to wonder if her life has any value at all. Her friends seem to turn away from her and she seeks solace and peace at the top of the tower near her home. Will she find the answers she longs for as she sits high above the edge of her world?
