The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson

January 2014

Hayley Kincain and her father, Andy, have been on the road, never staying long in one place as he struggles to escape the demons that have tortured him since Iraq. Now they are staying in one place so Hayley can attend school. Perhaps she can have a normal life, put aside her own pain, even have a relationship. Will being back home help Andy’s PTSD, or will his terrible memories drag him to the edge of hell, and drugs push him over?
