About the Book



Jake Moon loved spending time with his grandfather, Skelly. But that was before Skelly was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Leavened with Park's trademark humor, this is a sensitive, honest, and touching look at a disease that affects an increasing number of families.



Book Synopsis



How can you love someone and resent him at the same time?

Jake Moon used to love the time he spent with his grandfather, Skelly, but that was before Skelly got Alzheimer's disease. All of a sudden, it's as if Skelly is the kid, and Jake has to be the grown-up. Much of Skelly's care becomes Jake's responsibility, and that doesn't leave much time for a life of his own.

Then, one day Jake rebels, and the unthinkable happens. Has Jake discovered too late how much his grandfather still means to him?

Barbara Park, one of today's most popular and versatile authors, has created a funny, honest, and unforgettable portrait of a boy struggling to understand this debilitating disease and graduate to a more sympathetic and accepting relationship with his beloved grandfather.
