My Invisible Father is a story is about three young teens who face different voids through similar omissions—missing fathers. And as they try to make sense of their own lives while trying to make sense of the world, they encounter tragedies and triumphs directly related to their fathers. They confront the difficult acknowledgment of race relations that rock the core of their existence in a city that historically has been as divided as the streets paved in it. Though a novel for teens and young adults, anyone can enjoy and be enlightened by this gripping story.
