About: Daniel is about to head off to college to study philosophy and his Grandfather has just been diagnosed with dementia. Daniel doesn’t want to leave to college and come back knowing that his grandfather has succumbed to his dementia. He has made a pact with himself that he will spend every second with his grandfather until he leaves for college. During their quality time together Daniel can’t help but notice his Grandfathers weird behavior and crazy stories. Daniel thinks they aren’t real and are a figment of his dementia’s imagination. That would be the case except for the fact that people from his Grandfathers past are showing up out of nowhere and aren’t giving Daniel good feelings at all. He knows that people from his Grandfather’s past are out to get him and will do whatever he can to ensure his Grandfathers safety.
Review: At first I was intrigued with the novel’s storyline and loved the relationship between family members. Daniel and his Grandfather reminded me of the relationship my Grandfather and I had. I would say that the story included action, adventure, and comedy. I thought there were some excellent qualities about family, dark pasts, and education in the novel that would catch many peoples interests. Although I did like the novel there was one thing I didn’t like about it, which was the sort of “rambling” storyline. One scene your here and then the next your there! Other than that it was great!
