Wow. This book is heavy. Really, really heavy. And that description is coming from someone who loves reading horror stories, true crime, etc.The descriptions of the emotionally abusive father are just disturbing. There is no comic relief or other strategies to lighten the mood. No scenes that are neutral in content. It's just scene after scene of the dad beratting the son and the son being horribly depressed. The ending offers no resolution about the relationship.The book depicts adults arguing about the child's SPED services. Kids with Ld have enough to worry about; why should they learn about school politics???The book has references to Judaism which may confuse the reader.The book ends with the kid writing an essay that earned an A+ but there is no mention of strategies he or his teachers used to address his LD.Again. heavy. Just disturbing. I have no idea how this book would be helpful to any reader.Here are some superb books for children and teens with learning difficulties and disabilities:Grades 1-3It’s Called Dyslexia, Jennifer Mallinos1-5Knees: The Mixed Up World of a Kid with Dyslexia, Vanita Oelschlager2-5The Alphabet War: A Story About Dyslexia, Diane RobbHank Zipzer series (protagonist has dyslexia), Henry Winkler3-4Susan Shreve- The Flunking of Joshua T. Bates, Joshua Bates Takes Charge, Joshua T.
