I have chosen this book to review because as a counselor, mother of a neurologically challenged child, person who has repeatedly dealt with rural poverty, and a member of a wonderful book club there is no doubt in my mind that you need to read Icy Sparks.
When I read the first few chapters, I thought it was just another book about the meaning of warmth and love to a disabled child. It's true that this love matters, but what also matters is that the child is given the respect to struggle and fight through the issues. In this case Icy has to suffer the pangs of growing up in an untouched background where such things are still mysteries.
What Gwyn Rubio does in the first person is get the reader into the personality as well as the thoughts and experiences of Icy. This is not an easy trick to do in the first person narrative. The colorful experiences and language never fails to fascinate the reader.
In addition, the key friendship that unlocks Icy's trust is unexpected and perhaps a bit unpalatable to readers of this genre as the friend has an issue to struggle over as well.
And as the ending is a surprise and integral to the plot, I want you to read this book to find it out. If you read it, your faith that anyone can love and be loved will be heightened or restored.
