Growing up without a mother is hard. Worse is having a stepmother who controls Dad.

Brittany Myerson is so ready for high school to end. She knows that life is going to get a whole lot better when she gets her driver’s license, the car she’s always wanted and a ticket to college away from home. But her new stepmother has decided what’s good enough for Brittany: a beat-up, mustard-colored piece of junk and enrollment in the local community college. Brittany thinks it can’t get much worse until she learns that her father has changed his will leaving everything to Lynn. Suddenly, Brittany’s father dies and the police suspect…murder.
