For as long as Robinson can remember, it’s just been her and Grandpa. But Grandpa’s memory has been getting bad. On top of that, she can’t resist using her fists when bullies like Alex make fun of her for not having a mom. Now she’s stuck in group guidance, and to make things worse, Alex is there too. Robbie can't open up some therapy group, especially not with Alex in the room. Besides, if she told anyone how forgetful Grandpa’s been getting, they’d take her away from him. He’s the only family she has --- and it’s up to her to keep them together, no matter what.
