I found this book to be a wonderful read for kids 10 and up. It talks about how Rockford or Rocky fro short faces bullying as a kid. Heartache as an adult. For me, I felt it spoke to our inner soul and made the point that no matter the obstacle we encounter we can overcome and succeed if we keep trying.
As a mom with MS, I could relate to that as times haven’t always been easy but like Rocky, I kept moving forward. With the help of family, friends, and just preserving I was able to create something I was proud of. Just as Rocky went from a shy, scared kid to running his own business.
I highly recommend reading this book as a family and talking about all that Rocky went through. It’s a wonderful story of love, strength, heartache, and finding happiness and joy. It’s a perfect summer read for everyone.
