Having a parent return from military duty is a dream come true. But sometimes, coming home comes with problems.

For Rosie, life is nearly perfect. She has the perfect ROTC boyfriend and perfect grades. Her ex-Marine Corps father still barks orders like he’s in uniform, but he’s finally home for good—until he announces that he’s going to re-enlist. Rosie’s angry at the news. Really angry. Her behavior spins out of control, causing problems at school, at home, with her boyfriend, and even with law enforcement. Can she face her father and check her anger in time to get her life back on track?
