Do you think difficult child would be old enough to read this? He'll be 15yo in Jan and is in 9th grade. He's in Honors English because he has a good vocabulary and can think of pretty creative sories, but honestly, I think his actual reading is a little behind- he hates doing it which doesn't help. Wasn't there a movie about it? Or was that just a mini-version to convey the concept? I'd like to get him something (he'll have to wait until he's released to actually get it) that would help him think positive and believe in himself but be interesting for a boy his age. He isn't religious so I can't go that route. I tried a book last year about a boy who struggled and came through a lot but he didn't get into it and never read it- I think it depressed him.
