This work of contemporary literary fiction will appeal to readers who appreciate poetry. A psychological novel, it's about love, loss, grief, and overcoming suicidal thoughts. Because it's about being faithful to one's beloved, it's a love story, but not of the usual kind. Set in a Michigan University town, the plot follows the story of a 23-year-old female student who has lost her reason to live due to her brother's death. A male classmate, who resembles her brother, restores the meaning to her life. But will it last? For those who despair, this novel stresses the importance of not giving up hope.
In this children's novel, 13-year-old Roger Tucker has run away from his home in Detroit to escape the inconsiderate behavior of his parents. His destination is Iron Town, a small city in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, where he has many relatives who love him. His goal is to find the right one to adopt him until he turns eighteen when he can live on his own. Upon arrival there, his cousin helps him settle in. One thing leads to another until he comes across an uncle who wins approval from Roger's parents to take care of him for the summer. Although he had hoped to avoid his problem by changing places, he ends up facing similar challenges with the people he encounters in Iron Town too. The only thing left to do then is learn how to deal with them. Anyone who's been bullied might find something of value in this book.
