by Ivette Febo
Mikee is a seven-year-old boy who lives with his mom and has never met his dad. One day, Mikees mom tells him that he is old enough to meet his dad. As Mikee prepares to meet his father for the first time he begins to wonder why his dad has not been in his life.
Take an emotional journey with our hero, Mikee, as he goes from wondering about his dad, to realizing the facts and finally accepting the truth. Both, you the reader and Mikee, will come to terms with the notion that in order for maturity to take place, innocence must be lost. Sometimes the biggest step you can take into adulthood is to have an open mind.
