Subtitle on dust jacket: how I lost my mother, found my father, and dealt with family addiction.

Prologue -- Chapter 1: family history -- Chapter 2: life with Leslie -- Chapter 3: skipping a generation -- Chapter 4: disclosure -- Chapter 5: pen to paper -- Chapter 6: hard work -- Chapter 7: ghosts -- Chapter 8: lost and found -- Author's note.

"In kindergarten, Jarrett Krosoczka's teacher asks him to draw his family, with a mommy and a daddy. But Jarrett's family is much more complicated than that. His mom is an addict, in and out of rehab, and in and out of Jarrett's life. His father is a mystery -- Jarrett doesn't know where to find him, or even what his name is. Jarrett lives with his grandparents -- two very loud, very loving, very opinionated people who had thought they were through with raising children until Jarrett came along"--
