Seventeen-year-old Ben Mander has a particularly OK life. His mother, who has schizophrenia, refuses to take her medication, and when under duress spins outrageous tales of lizard people. Ben's father, divorced from his mother and estranged from his current girlfriend, spends most of his days haunting sleazy bars and crashing in cheap motels. Ben struggles to work with his mother.
This was a good book that shows how sometimes, it's the kids who have to take care of their parents.
