Thirteen-year-old Mark Rogers knew that his Grandpa Luigi had Alzheimer's but he hadn't counted on it turning his life upside-down. When his mother suggests that the two of them move in with Grandpa and help care for him, Mark reluctantly agrees because his grandfather has always been something of a hero to him. He doesn't know, however, how strange Grandpa's behaviour has become or that the kids in his new school have a nickname for him: Crazy Luigi.

From the Publisher

Thirteen-year-old Mark Rogers knew that his Grandpa Luigi had Alzheimer's but he hadn't counted on it turning his life upside-down. When his mother suggests that the two of them move in with Grandpa and help care for him, Mark reluctantly agrees because his grandfather has always been something of a hero to him.

From Our Editors

Thirteen-year-old Mark always thought of his grandfather as a kind of hero. His grandfather has Alzheimer’s, and when his mother suggests that the two of them take care of Grandpa, Mark agrees. But Mark doesn’t know that his grandfather’s behaviour has become strange. Nor has he heard the nicknames the kids at his new school have for his grandfather. Help Wanted Wednesdays Only by Peggy Dymond Leavey is a thoughtful story about dealing with age and peer pressure.

Appropriate for ages: 9
