Description

A bully primed for battle. A high school ready to explode. A must-listen for every parent. "You think only students have to deal with backstabbing and bullying in high school? Think again. Wolf's heroine, a high school guidance counselor, fights back." (The Denver Post) Friday Night Lights meets Ordinary People when Beth Maller returns to her job as a high school guidance counselor shortly after her teenage son Danny is killed in a car accident. Now back at work, Beth rails against the everyday injustices she had overlooked until her world cracked open. Her new circumstances cause Beth to become a major player in the moral battles being waged at Meadow Brook High - where homophobia snakes through the halls, administrators cling to don't-rock-the-boat policies, and mean girls practice bullying as if it were a sport. While Beth struggles to find her "new normal", she learns to speak out, risking her career, her marriage, and the very life she's embraced.

Danny's Mom illustrates what really goes on behind the closed doors of our schools from the perspective of the adults who are charged with keeping our children safe. It's a powerful novel that will appeal to all readers, especially parents, everyone who works in schools, and the LGBT community.
