A NAME EARNED

Starred Kirkus Review! 

 “This story of friendship shows how a supportive Native American community comes together to support a wounded family. Tingle highlights the resilience that young people have as they navigate family challenges. What is most special is the bond that develops between Bobby and his father, a father-son relationship that defies the odds, depicting a healed father on the other side of sobriety. An empathetic story that any teen dealing with family alcoholism can connect to.”
