Biker Approval for Flowers for Rodney, by Kristine E. Brickey
Found this article relevant?
I just finished reading this really good book called "Flowers for Rodney" by a local author (and friend of Bikers for Books), Kristine Brickey.
This is a great book that covers many struggles that our youth face on a daily basis. I had some very real moments while reading this books that had me reflecting on my own life at that age.
Seems like these days, the pressures and stress are bigger and more pronounced than the 80's or 90's. Kids these days have to be a little more resourceful and brave to "just make it", anymore.
The secret is......it's never too late to make a change, never too late to ask for help, never too late to turn yourself around, just like Rodney does in this book.
Struggles inside the home are as tough as struggles in society. I have to admit that this book had me choked up toward the end. Definitely worth the read.
We have had the absolute pleasure of working with Kristine on more than one occasion. It's exciting to know that this particular author is from Michigan and is only about 20 miles from my hometown. I think one of the most notable fun facts is that she has been an educator for nearly 30 years and has works first hand with our youth.
Thank you Kristine for sharing your creation with the world.
