Labor Day

A quick summary of a book I highly recommend:Labor Day

Labor Day by Joyce Maynard. Fiction. Everything changes for Henry, a lonely, friendless 13-year-old who lives with just his emotionally fragile, divorced mother, when a mysterious bleeding man named Frank–an escaped convict–asks for a hand and ends up coming home with them. Over the next five days, Henry will learn some of life’s most valuable lessons, about the pain of jealousy, the power of betrayal, and the importance of putting those we care about above ourselves—and that real love is worth waiting for. This is a quick read (young adult, I believe) and one of my all-time favorite books.
