Hugging the Rock by Susan Taylor Brown

Some people might think that this book is only for Tweens, but I think it would speak to some Teens as well. Although it is a difficult subject, the free verse (poetry) format makes it easier to read. The book begins with Rachel’s mother leaving home and goes on to show how Rachel and her father attempt (and sometimes fail) to deal with the resulting mix of grief and anger. A “must read” for children of bipolar parents.

Happy Reading!
