    A Troublesome Boy

    A very powerful story of two boys who have lead very different but difficult lives. Teddy is angry with this world after his father disappears, finds himself bundled off to a Roman Catholic residential school where he meets Cooper. Cooper has had an even more difficult life. The two become friends of a sort. Teddy is disturbed by the attention some of the priests seem to be giving to the boys, when Cooper becomes a particular favourite of one of the priests. Teddy tries to support Cooper but his downward spiral is hard for a 14 year old boy to understand and deal with. The boys find some solace in the school's janitor. Will it be enough? I often read more than one book simultaneously, but knew that this would not be possible with this book. The realities of residential schools, the physical, emotional, and sexual abuses that took place in them is a sad story, but one that needs to be told. It is being aware of this part of life that we can use to help us ensure that the abuse stops and we can help to heal.
