hasn't seen or heard from her father since she was 6 years old. Dad
left when Sam was three. Right after the accident. Dad and
Sam's twin sister Sarah went out in the canoe. But it tipped over
and Sarah was killed. Dad took off and the only time Sam heard from
him was a postcard he sent from the zoo. It had a picture of a monkey
on it and a short note but nothing else. And now Sam is consumed
with finding Dad. She is so desperate, she goes to the local psychic
for information. But that was no help. The woman only told
her that Sarah was alive. So much for being psychic! So Sam
sets out on a journey that she hopes will lead to her father.
