"Your dad has cancer." Ten-year-old Sharon hears these words. Not from her parents. They lied. Set mainly in 1950s and 1960s Toronto, this is Sharon's story before and after Daddy's dirty little secret surfaces. Before, she is Princess to her elderly father's King. He protects her, a shy only child, from best friend, The Bully. Sharon also deals with a bullying nun at school. She distracts herself playing baseball and piano, riding the rails with Mom and railway timekeeper Daddy, and visiting eccentric Detroit and rural Ontario relatives. After learning the truth, Sharon withdraws from Daddy. At 13, she teaches Mom to play the piano. Then Daddy gets sick again, and again...and dies.

Sharon A. Crawford's memoir is a powerful, sometimes humorous, account of a young girl's lessons learned from difficult teachers - bullying, betrayal, and cancer.
