About this book

Book Summary

Josh Cameron has it all: a World Championship ring with the Boston Celtics, an MVP award, a clean-cut image, and the adoration of millions. What he doesn’t have is family. Until the day 12-year-old smartaleck Molly Parker confronts him in a parking lot and claims to be his daughter - the only daughter of Jen Parker, Josh’s college sweetheart and the still the only girl he’s ever loved. Trouble is, Jen Parker died last year, and now Molly has tracked down the father she never knew, the one her mother never wanted her to know about.

Great book: Miracle on 49th Street
This is definitely one of the top five books that I have ever read. All of the characters in it are awesome! The girl (Molly Parker) acts exactly how I imagine someone in her situation acting. If there were a 100 rating, I would definitely give it to this book.
