Kurzbeschreibung

His summer vacation is ruined when twelve-year-old Buzz Collins is forced to share his room and emotional space with his grandfather, who has Alzheimer's disease, and his parents forbid him to associate with his best friend, Mitch. The thought of giving up his friendship is heartbreaking enough. But how can he relate to someone who forgets his grandson's name, wears adult diapers, and thinks dog biscuits are people cookies, someone who could die in the night and scare Buzz right out of puberty?

Buzz thinks Alzheimer's is caused by a traumatic event, such as the train accident that killed Grandpa's brother Barkley. When Grandpa's mind wanders and he mistakes Buzz for Barkley, Buzz assumes the role of his great uncle, and in the process he develops compassion and appreciation for his grandfather.

The situation turns deadly when Buzz and Mitch - whose friendship Buzz refuses to end - attempt to cure Grandpa of Alzheimer's disease by recreating the train accident on a hot summer day. (Ages 12+)

Readers who enjoyed the movie "Stand By Me" will enjoy this coming-of-age novel.

Synopsis

Summer vacation sucks when 12-year-old Buzz Collins shares his room and emotional space with his grandfather, who has Alzheimer's disease, and his parents forbid him to associate with his best friend, Mitch. The thought of giving up his friendship is bad enough. But how can he relate to someone who forgets his grandson's name, wears adult diapers, and thinks dog biscuits are people cookies--someone who could die in the night and scare Buzz right out of puberty. Buzz thinks Alzheimer's is caused by a traumatic event, such as the train accident that killed Grandpa's brother Barkley in childhood. The situation turns deadly when Buzz and Mitch--whose friendship Buzz refuses to end--attempt to cure Grandpa of Alzheimer's disease by recreating the train accident on a hot summer day. (Ages 12 & up) Imprint: Aurorawolf Books LCCN: 2005900423 Readers who enjoyed the movie "Stand By Me" will also enjoy this book. Turner's Spirit Lights also available at Lulu.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Who says grandpa sitting is easy? 13. Juli 2006
Von John Albrecht Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Twelve year old Buzz Collins thought so, but he was wrong.

Everything started when Buzz's grandpa, Baxter Collins moved in. Grandpa Collins, recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease was going to be sharing a room with Buzz for the summer. Buzz really didn't like the idea of this at first. He found grandpa quite annoying. Grandpa seemed to go off into his own little world at times, or as Buzz would say, "Driving away in the Alzheimer". Every night, grandpa would count aimlessly until he fell asleep "4...7...2...". Buzz wanted to cure his grandpa's Alzheimer's... he had an idea.

I read this book in one sitting. It seemed as if the pages were turning themselves.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is the most heart-warming book I have read 22. April 2005
Von Sherry Chaudoir - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This one is a tear-jerker, as I found myself emotionally engrossed, staying up all night long to read the book in one sitting. I just couldn't put it down.

This book realistically exemplifies what happens to many people as they age, and the life and love and letting go that families go through together.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good heart-warming family story.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautifully Written, Amazing Book 16. März 2011
Von Sophrosyne - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I could not put the book down. I read it in one sitting. It's one of the most beautifully written books I've ever read. The story is a real page-turner, the characters are brilliantly drawn. It's truly an amazing novel. I only wish I had discovered it sooner!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazingly touching and sincere look at family dynamics ... 1. Mai 2012
Von Fascinatingbooks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
A must-read for anyone that has ever or will ever deal with the problems of caring for an elder with cognitive impairment. I didn't find the story sad due to the courage, support and love all the family members showed in times of crisis. Each of them might have been flawed but they still were able to pull together and find a way to cope.

Even with a disease that can rob an elder of dignity the author gave the grandfather his own special brand of value and charm without down playing the very difficult of job of caring for someone that isn't able to see to his own needs anymore. It wasn't grim, it wasn't sappy .... it was magnificent and inspiring. If I could have given this book ten stars I would have.
