When Zoe gets a letter on her 12th birthday from the prisoner father she's never met, she begins to investigate his case further but getting to the truth proves harder than she thought.
Zoe Washington never met her father, who was sent to prison right before she was born. When she receives a letter from him on her twelfth birthday, it's a huge surprise.
Zoe's mom always told her that Marcus was a liar, a monster, but he sounds nice. Zoe starts to investigate the crime - and the deeper she digs, the more she doubts the conviction. Is her father innocent? Or is he a liar? Zoe is determined to find out.
