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. His mom is an addict, in and out of rehab, in and out of Jarrett's life. His father is a mystery. Jarrett lives with his grandparents--two very loud, very loving, very opinionated people. Jarrett tries to make his non-normal life as normal as possible, finding a way to express himself through drawing. Only as a teenager can Jarrett begin to piece together the truth of his family, reckoning with his mother and tracking down his father.
