Bad Kid by David Crabb

I read this book for Book Riot’s Read Harder Challenge, task #5
Yes, I liked the book, no I did not like every page. Thankfully David Crabb is funny or this book would be too sad. I worry about kids like David – they are not bad but they are making bad choices. In David’s favor, he’s got a lot of love in his life. While his dad truly struggles with David’s life choices and sexuality he loves him just the same. I adore his mother and the way she talks about herself in the third person. Crabb has captured her spirit beautifully.

Look for David at some upcoming Moth storytelling events.

Check out the trailer for the book to get a sense of the humor and sadness.
