Kimberly Ann “Kiki” Kinsler is a twenty-one year-old college student excited to be returning home to Portland, Oregon for summer break and eager to see her family.
Instead of the happy homecoming that she anticipates, Kiki’s world is upended by an unimaginable tragedy. Her parents and younger sister are dead, victims of Little Mo Biggs, a tragically accidental monster; the victim of profound parental neglect and abuse.
Kiki is also attacked and hospitalized but survives.
In the hospital, when all appears lost, she is given an opportunity to wipe away the nightmare, to un-do it, and correct the senseless tragedy.
The Gift of a second chance: A wonderful, improbable, miraculous gift, that doesn’t come easily.
To reclaim her future Kiki must first correct the injustices of Little Mo’s past, which can only be corrected at the root.
In doing so, she learns that home is more than a place, it is also a time, and must confront the parallel challenges of life and love, past and present, in a love story with a foot in each world, 2012 and 1981
