This book will make restore your faith in the human race. The central character is down and out, divorced, unemployed and haunted by past events. He becomes the caregiver to another down and out boy, who has a debilitating disease. As their friendship develops, so do they - into wiser, more compassionate people. It is a real page turner. Read it - it will make you feel good.

I really enjoyed this book. The writing wasn't elegant, but the story and the characters touched my heart. It is the story of a man whose life is in shambles, he is divorced, unemployed and haunted by past tragedies. He becomes the caregiving of a teenage boy who has a delibitating and ultimately terminal muscle disease. These two damaged people become good friends and when they take a trip across country to see the boy's dad (who left when his son's illness struck)they have quite a journey, meeting several people along the way who, like themselves, are damaged but struggling. I read this in one day - and was sorry when I finished it. If I had had the author's telephone number I would have called him immediately just to say "I Loved Your Book.!"
