Slightly Dented Halos by LA Jackson is the true story of the author's life after she invited her in-laws to move in with them. Gus is confined to a wheelchair for mobility and Betts just isn't able to take care of him any longer by herself.
This was a delightful book. LA Jackson doesn't hold anything back, she tells us the good, the bad, and the ugly. Gus is depressed and rather grumpy, he just wants to stay at home. Betts is a scatter-brained do-gooder who enjoys helping others as well as sprinkling crumbs across the kitchen counter. Slightly Dented Halos is full of amusing anecdotes and sad stories.
The book tackles a big issue in today's society, the growing population of elderly needing care. The decision to put someone in a nursing home is one of the hardest decisions any child could ever face. LA Jackson tackles it head on with grace and humor.
You'll laugh and cry over this book.
