Wicked Good

Item Description

As her son Rory turns 16, Archer anticipates his breakdown. Her fears are confirmed when she receives a call that Rory is drunk at school. His behaviors escalate and lead him to his biological mother. As Archer joins Rory on his journey toward self-knowledge, she learns that neither she nor Rory need to be victims of his dual mental health diagnosis of bipolar disorder and Asperger's syndrome.

Archer and Rory live in a small town in Maine. Rory has been a difficult child since he was adopted by Archer and her now ex-husband, Wayne. Archer's life had been hijacked by Rory's needs while Wayne chose to leave the relationship and Maine for several years. Archer has felt victimized by Rory's disabilities and blames them for her inability to date, to pursue her career and other interests. Rory acts several years younger than his chronological age. He is charming, sensitive to everyone except his mother, stubborn and literal. When he gets it in his head to meet his biological mother, nothing can stop him. He even gets on the highway from Maine to Massachusetts on a riding lawn mower going five miles per hour. When Archer decides to accompany him on his journey, it becomes her journey as well.

Wicked Good is full of rich characters with whom you will cry, hope, laugh, and cheer. Rory is a character not seen in other novels, every action and thought a contradiction. For example, he is concerned about the safety of the squirrels in his garage yet brutal in his quest toward self-identity and independence. Rory's discoveries about his birth parents and himself leaves him and Archer hopeful in their knowledge that no matter where life takes them, they will always have unconditional love for the other.
