She wants her old life, the one with a family that's not falling apart. She wants to stay in her home with the woods in back, and keep her carefree dog with the windshield wiper tail, and hear her big brother shout "Sweet D-Dawg!" when her curveball dips like a sparrow.Dani has always believed her grandmother's philosophy: Right will win. Now everything is wrong. So why not punish the rotten neighbor who's to blame - who pulled the string that started everything unraveling? Makes sense - unless there's more to the story than Dani wants to admit.FAULT LINES traces Dani's journey through the rubble of loss to the path she finds back home, to forgiveness and hope.
