MyNDTALK - The Fix - Sharon Leder

Eight-year-old Sara Katz huddles under the covers, listening to her parents' muffled arguments and fighting the sleep that inevitably brings her bad dreams - dreams of her terrifying Shadow Father, a heroin addict.

Is my daddy not a good father? Is it my job to fix him?

As Josef's sickness worsens, young Sara is torn apart by her family's need to keep its "shame" a secret from its Jewish community in Brooklyn, New York. Sara finds herself drawn to the liberation movements of the 1960s while feeling trapped in the darkness of her father's addiction and, ultimately, his untimely death."

Will Sara ever learn the truth about how her father became addicted and why he couldn't get well?
