MEN OF STONE
New York : Kids Can Press
you imagine how it feels to be the only male in a house full of females?
Fifteen year old Ben Conrad has to deal with living with three sisters
and his mother, while handling the constant bullying of a high school classmate.
One more female in the house is more than he can take. However, when
Great-Aunt Frieda comes to visit, Ben begins to get in touch with his family's
Mennonite background and Russian heritage. As he learns about his
deceased father's family, can Ben also learn to control the anger that
is building in him? Will Ben be able to help himself and his family
finally get past their grief and become a real family again? Gayle
Freisen's Men of Stone helps the reader to see that a heart full of anger
or grief can become numb, and that we all need to find the rhythm inside
us that guides our steps. (Donnah Phillips, firstname.lastname@example.org,
