The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving (Compact Disc)
September 2012 Indie Next List
“What a heartfelt journey we travel in this capriciously tragic story of Benjamin Benjamin Jr., caregiver extraordinaire. His charge, Trev, is a 19-year-old suffering from Duchenne muscular dystrophy, or, as Ben describes him, 'a pretzel with a perfectly healthy imagination.' Ben is suffering too. He is trying to recover from a personal tragedy that has left him without a family or a job. To read this book is to be in a constant, conflicting state between tears and laughter.”
— Lynn Riggs, Books & Company, Oconomowoc, WI
From the bestselling author of "West of Here" comes a stirring novel that proves the long road home can sometimes be elusive and heartbreaking.
