Diamonds in the RoughBook - 1997
I pulled out the picture Cole had given us...my gaze fell on the boy, my uncle. I thought about the sadness in his eyes and what he'd been through at such a young age. And I was shocked to see a bit of me, staring back.
After the sudden death of Sky's mother, Sky wants nothing more than to keep her and her two young sisters together. The solution may lie with a newly discovered uncle. But Cole's criminal history and his constant struggle to escape the past are not exactly the stable parental qualities that the authorities are looking for. When Sky and Cole strike a mutually beneficial deal to create an acceptable image, they both get more than they bargained for.
