The Other, Better me

Lola and Momma have always been a team of two. It hasn’t always been easy for Lola, being one of the only kids she knows with just one parent around. And lately she’s been feeling incomplete, like there’s a part of herself that she can’t know until she knows her dad. But what will happen—to Lola, to Momma, to their team of two—if she finds him? A heartfelt novel from the award-winning author of Five Flavors of Dumb about a girl searching for the meaning of family.
