Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

At 35, Mika Suzuki is struggling.

She's been fired (again). Her last relationship went up in flames. Her fervently traditional mother is perpetually disappointed in her. And now, she's had a phone call from 16-year-old Penny Calvin. The baby she reluctantly gave up for adoption when she was just a teenager herself.

Mika is desperate to meet her girl. But she barely feels like she can take care of herself.

Is she ready to show Penny who her mother really is?
