Carrie Ackerson
Contemporary Realistic Fiction

Davey Wexler’s dad has been murdered. Nobody knows who did it, but what if the killer comes back?

Davey can’t deal with this, so when an aunt and uncle offer her family a holiday with them in Los Alamos, New Mexico, Davey’s mom agrees. As the holiday stretches into an entire school year, Davey makes new friends and her mother gets a marriage proposal. When Davey’s new friend Wolf loses his own father to cancer, both Davey and her mother find enough closure to return to Atlantic City. The tiger-eye stone Wolf gives to Davey goes with her, a stone that’s beautiful because of its banding: golden light beside the dark.
This 1981 story is dated but powerful. Please note that the background of the cover art looks nothing like Los Alamos ;-).
