Molly Parker is twelve years old, she moved back from England with her mom who sadly has cancer. Unfortunately two months after she moves, her mom dies of cancer. Now she has moved in with her mom's friend's family in Boston. Molly's dad has it all, NBA championships, endorsements, a good reputation with the media, and oh yeah I forgot, he also has a daughter who he doesn't know about. Molly is now trying to convince her real father, a Boston Celtic named Josh Cameron, that she is truly his daughter. Too bad he doesn't know who she is. Molly has to become very sneaky, and do a lot of research because he is a professional basketball player. She has to try to find where Josh Cameron lives, what Josh does off the court, and where he goes. Will Josh realize that Molly Parker is his daughter after all? Or will Molly be forced to live without her real dad?  (Matthew W., student)
