The pledge is supposed to keep Ashley strong until her father returns, but every little thing reminds her that he isn't home.
Ashley's dad made everything special. It's harder for Ashley to do homework without his silly flashcards. Breakfast isn't as much fun without secret dollops of chocolate syrup in her milk. And, although Ashley's mother helps her practice the Two-Step, no Daddy-Daughter Valentine Dance could be the same without her father there. Ashley says their secret pledge every day, but will she stay strong until Daddy comes home?
