    This book seriously was the most amazing book I have read in a long time Although I felt dumb at Einstein Bagels today reading a 115 page, kid print book, I didn t even care because I was so consumed in the plot line I love how the author Barbara Park shows a child s view of peer acceptance, single parenting, dysfunctional family dynamics, and maturing The whole book Jake Moon would try to make light of his grandpa s Alzheimer s and he always said how embarrassing and hard it was to be a kid But at the conclusion, he came to terms that he loved his grandpa in sickness or in health Having my grandpa die of Alzheimer s my freshman year of high school, I didn t really understand what was going on I was about Jake s age Contrasting our maturity, I really see the other side of things This book made me feel genuine empathy towards mine and Jake s grandpa s ill...

    This book to me was sad because Jake loved his grandpa Skelly and looked up to him for advice and when he found out that his grandpa was sick with Alzheimer s he didn t think at first it was a big deal but really it affected not only him but his whole family In the beginning Jake let his friends make fun of his grandpa for the things that he did Like when he had Aaron over and his grandpa didn t have on pants then Aaron went to school and Jake was teased by all of his classmates Jake as time goes on realizes that his grandpa s illness has taken a toll on his personal life to be not being able to be a kid and taking care of of Skelly I think he hated the illness for turning his grandpa into someone that couldn t take care of himself like wiping food off his own face or putting things where they shouldn t be I think Jake realized when his grandpa wandered off and was lost and didn t come home for 48 hours that Jake came to realize having Skel...

    I thought this book was amazing I instantly connected with Jake and his feelings towards his grandfather My own grandmother dealt with either dementia or Alzheimer s when I was growing up She meant the world to me, but at times I would be embarrassed by her forgetfulness I loved the ending of the book where Jake seems to accept and love his grandfather, doesn t mean that he won t be embarrassed by him It would be great for students to understand that other people might be goin...
