"In kindergarten, Jarrett Krosoczka's teacher asks him to draw his family, with a mommy and a daddy. But Jarrett's family is much more complicated than that. His mom is an addict, in and out of rehab, and in and out of Jarrett's life. His father is a mystery -- Jarrett doesn't know where to find him, or even what his name is. Jarrett lives with his grandparents -- two very loud, very loving, very opinionated people who had thought they were through with raising children until Jarrett came along"-- Provided by publisher.

COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Hey, Not Just for Youth submitted by James C. Clark on April 6, 2019, 1:34pm I found this to be a compelling memoir of a young man raised by his grandparents, especially so because he followed his heart to both his chosen occupation and, as an adult, a stable family life, against incredible odds. His connection to family is strong, tugging at the heartstrings at times. The teenage sulks were something I cannot appreciate fully at my age, but they were an obstacle to overcome toward becoming a functioning adult. Well done, Jarrett Krosoczka, for both this graphic biography and following your muse for our enrichment.
