Ruff Life

240 pages3 hours


Bob and Mickeys peaceful retirement on Anna Maria Island, Florida is disrupted when their grandchildren from Indiana spend the summer. While the kids confront young local bullies, their grandparents face senior citizen bullies as their Condo Homeowners Association board uses rules and fines to force them to move away from this tropical Paradise.

Sabra is a precocious deaf, ten-year old who flirts with college boys and pressures her grandparents to learn American Sign Language. Davids twelve, yearning for teenage independence while still dealing with childish fears. Island boys Bone and Heath just want to make everyone miserable.

Reading this book is like living for a summer on the island. Readers will feel the sea breeze, enjoy meeting the AMI Privateers and walk the beach with Turtle Watch volunteers. Youll spend time at the Community Center and party with families at Deaf Service Center events. Come and enjoy real island locations, take a cruise to Egmont Key, and meet rescued dogs, veterans, cowards, heroes and villains.
