Lou has enough confusion in front of her this summer. She'll be working in her family's ice-cream shack with her newly ex-boyfriend and her former best friend, King, who is back in
their Canadian prairie town after disappearing three years ago without a word. But when she gets a letter from her biological father - a man she hoped would stay behind bars for the rest of his life - Lou immediately knows that she cannot meet him, no matter how much he insists. While King's friendship makes Lou feel safer and warmer than she would have thought possible, when her family's business comes under threat, she soon realizes that she can't ignore her father forever.
