What does a girl say to the father she's never met, hadn't heard from until his letter arrived on her twelfth birthday, and who's been in prison for a terrible crime? A crime he says he never committed. Could Marcus really be innocent? Zoe Washington is determined to uncover the truth. Even if it means hiding her investigation from the rest of her family. Everyone thinks Zoe's proving to her parents that she's worthy of auditioning for Food Network's Kids Bake Challenge. But with bakery confections on one part of her mind, and Marcus's conviction on the other, this is one recipe Zoe doesn't know how to balance. The only thing she knows to be true: Everyone lies.
