The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving

by Jonathan Evison - £7.99  Head of Zeus (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781781851777 | ISBN 10: 1781851778

Ben was once a stay-at-home dad. Now, after a tragic accident left him with no home and no family, he is trying to rebuild his life with a career in caregiving. His first client is Trev, a sarcastic teenager with muscular dystrophy. In the mornings, Trev watches the weather channel in his wheelchair. In the evenings, he works on a giant wall map of America's weirdest tourist sites. He rarely leaves the house.
 
But when Trev's estranged father gets in touch, Ben breaks all the rules of caregiving by taking Trev on the roadtrip of a lifetime.
 
Acutely moving, full of warmth and compassion, this is a life-affirming story about finding hope and redemption after terrible tragedy.
