Kiconco loves her family and enjoys spending time with them. There is one thing missing however – she never gets to spend time with her dad. Her parents are separated and she doesn’t get to see her father – at all. She misses him and feels like she has a huge hole in her heart because of that. A Chance to Love addresses parental alienation and neglect, and Jestina hopes it will be a valuable tool to aid parents, teachers, and family advocacy personnel in explaining such confusing experiences to young children. The author believes in children being heard, understood and loved, and wants to use books to support people to do that. The book is meant to show children like Kiconco, that it’s never their fault that a parent is absent, and to also try to understand that grown-ups are imperfect.
