Hey, kiddo : how I lost my mother, found my father, and dealt with family addiction / by Jarrett J. Krosoczka.
In preschool, Jarrett Krosoczka's teacher asks him to draw his family, with a mommy and a daddy. But Jarrett's family is much more complicated than that. His mom is an addict, in and out of rehab, and in and out of Jarrett's life. His father is a mystery--Jarrett doesn't know where to find him, or even what his name is. Jarrett lives with his grandparents--two very loud, very loving, very opinionated people who had thought they were through with raising children... until Jarrett came along. Now Jarrett's a teenager. He's gone through his childhood trying to make his non-normal life as normal as possible, finding a way to express himself through art despite the fact that he's grown up in a house where many things have remained unsaid. It's only when he's old enough to have his driver's license that Jarrett can begin to piece together the truth of his family--reckoning with his mother, tracking down his father, and finding his own identity. -- Provided by publisher.
