in her life. Skylar is a fun-loving kid who enjoys riding her rip stick and hanging out with her buddy Monty

and her stuffed animal Ms. Sophie. Skylar has everything except the one thing she wants and needs the most, her dad. Growing up without dad is tough, but Skylar finds her way with the help of a very special friend.

A wild adventure teaches Skylar an important lesson about faith and her future. Skylar shares all the things she's learned along the way with her readers with the hope of connecting with other fatherless children who maybe going through the same thing.
