A Reason To Stay

When the mother who abandoned her comes back into her life, twelve-year-old Rory’s world is turned upside down. Now she must choose: say goodbye to the woman who has been like a mother or let go of the thing she wants most. After discovering a letter buried at the bottom of the lake, Rory searches for the one person that just might hold the answer.

Rory’s story is about family, friendship, and the love that is possible when we accept ourselves for who we are.
