THE YEAR OF THE GOPHER
New York : Bantam, 1987
Richard's dad is a lawyer who'll pay George's way through law school at
the Ivy League school of his choice. The problem is George doesn't know
what he wants to do. He has insight into what makes his younger brother
tick and is concerned about how his sister is hanging out with older guys.
Richards has enough self-confidence to defy his dad and take a year off
working as a gopher for a nursery. This is a fast-paced realistic look
at the grief some kids face when their future plans are at odds with their
parents' plans for their future.
