The Death and Life of Benny Brooks / Ethan Long

Benny is dealing with a LOT of troubles (which are creating more troubles like insomnia and poor grades at school).  He and his siblings are feeling completely invisible now that their mom and dad are going through a messy divorce and their mom has moved away. Now, Benny’s dad has received a frightening diagnosis—but refuses to stop smoking. This book, which is somewhat of a memoir for author Ethan Long, is a heartbreaking and hilarious–but accessible and necessary–look at how parents can sometimes be all too human. Ages 9 and up.
