The bedtime story my father used to tell me began with my grandmother's body.
Friday 56:
So we weren't the happiest family in Happy Town. But I wasn't a gloomy kid, or contrary to my Dad's predictions, a creepy kid, and life wasn't so bad.
Comment: Imogene's father has gone missing and she is sure he left her with the tools to find him. The first place to start is to find her mother who left when Imogene was a baby.
