Ada has not been raised like a typical daughter. David, her single, socially inept father, is a brilliant computer scientist who heads his own prestigious university lab. He home-schools Ada, which consisted largely of bringing her to work with him every day and teaching her overly-advanced subjects in the evenings. When David starts to show signs of dementia, 14-year-old Ada tries to keep their deteriorating household a secret. Inevitably, David is placed into a nursing home leaving Ada to be raised by Liston, one of his colleagues, along with her three sons. No longer able to communicate, it comes to light that David is perhaps not who everyone thought he was. Liz Moore, the author of Heft, brings us unforgettable characters faced with seemingly impossible circumstances.
