Hey, Kiddo (National Book Award Finalist) (Paperback)
Jarrett Krosoczka's autobiographical book is told with courageous honesty and reveals the pain and disruption endured in a young person's life by the struggle with addiction of a parent. A passion for art is the author's salvation and because of that passion and hard work Jarrett Krosoczka became one of today's most beloved children's book author/illustrator. Bravo!— From Joan's Picks
A National Book Award Finalist!
Jarrett goes through his childhood trying to make his non-normal life as normal as possible, finding a way to express himself through drawing even as so little is being said to him about what's going on. Only as a teenager can Jarrett begin to piece together the truth of his family, reckoning with his mother and tracking down his father.
Hey, Kiddo is a profoundly important memoir about growing up in a family grappling with addiction, and finding the art that helps you survive.
