Book Review: All Rise for the Honorable Perry T. Cook

All Rise for the Honorable Perry T. Cook

by Leslie Connory648


A book about a child born in raised in a prison.  And it’s not a downer,  not at all.  Filled with quirky characters and so much love, it is sure to be a favorite for many readers.

The action plot is exciting – what will happen if people find out?  How will Perry’s life change?  How will his mom endure without him by her side?

A thoughtful emotional plot really focuses on how we define home and family.  The title permeates the entire text:  rise up.  Get out of bed.  Take a class.  Do your chores.  Make a plan.  Rise yourself up from where you are.
