Sam 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.
