It's About Luke
“Mom, if there was a car accident, who would you save first?”
Luke Poole is an ordinary boy struggling between the everyday normal and the fringe world of David, his older, severely disabled brother. They enjoy a close relationship, often giving rise to impulsive deeds that lead to situations with hilarious consequences. Luke’s relationship with his mother is dominated by his feelings of being undervalued and disrespected as she struggles to maintain her own sanity in the stressful and exhausting demands of daily life. Sudden tragedy leads to Luke’s discovery of who he is and the meaning of family.
Love, family, and adventure are among the themes woven into this mesmerizing narrative. It’s a fun read that is full of love and tears. The writing is beautiful, filled with insightful passages and emotionally charged moments. -Readers' Favorite Book Reviews and Awards Contest
