This is a story every parent should read. It is told from 2 points of view; Kevin (Dad) and Alex (Son). It is an honest, raw and emotional account of a father who is trying to find the balance between his high profile career as a journalist and his family life. His son is struggling with his own problems such as being bullied at school and his sexuality.
What I enjoyed most about this book was the different perspectives the men both had in regards to the same events. How as an adult you can view something entirely different to that of a teenager. Both men are very honest in their accounts of their lives, making the reader think, laugh and consider how you, yourself are performing as a parent.
I myself was gasping, my heart in my throat, in the opening chapter reading Kevin's account of the dramatic entrance Alex made into the world. I also really enjoyed the insights into the world of journalism and TV.
Overall this book is about family and how a parents love for their child is deep and unconditional. Although this father and son drifted apart through the years they found a way back to each other, making their relationship even stronger.
I really feel this book will resonate with readers. It will stay with you long after you have finished it. ï¿½ Danielle
