Overview


Gabe Novalee seeks to put his broken life together, but fate doesn't seem to be on his side. The chain restaurant where he's been employed for two years closes suddenly on Christmas Eve, right before his long-estranged sons are set to arrive for a brief two-day visit. Although he's struggled to right the wrongs committed in earlier years, Gabe finds himself without work, without money, and most of all without faith in himself and those around him. What he fears most is how his two young sons, now being raised in the finest suburb of Atlanta, will respond to him, his tiny apartment on the wrong side of town, and his apparent lack of success in the world. What could possibly happen at this late date that would mend their relationship?

    Good story and great writing

    This well written novella offers a contemporary snapshot of our multicultural society and the diversity of challenges from being a part of it. Though intended for a young adult audience the characters and their experiences are easy to identify with and relate to. The Kwanzaa theme is a slowly emerging aspect of the story, brought into focus by the children of the main character and given significance during their visit to him over the Christmas holidays A great story for teens and young adults dealing with their own family and social issues
