Abstract:

As she tries to help her father deal with his memories of Vietnam, fifteen-year-old Tess finds comfort in her friendship with the sensible Selina and distraction in her infatuation with the dangerous Caleb. During a stay at an aunt's home with her exhausted father, a Vietnam War veteran, 15-year-old Tessa falls in love with handsome but dangerous Caleb. Tessa Ramsey has always yearned for a wise and loving father, someone like Atticus Finch in "To Kill a Mockingbird". Her father's career as a surgeon left little time for her. Then after serving as an army doctor in Vietnam, the two are even farther apart. It takes a chilling confrontation with an older boy to bring father and daughter together again.
