The Summer of Grumps By Terry Groves
Could life get any worse? Not only has Mike been denied his summer job and time with his friends, he's been dumped at his grandparents. A big city boy trapped in small town Aylmer Ontario with his grandfather hates him…and for no good reason, well, almost.
Mike has managed to find himself in trouble a lot over his sixteen years. Putting action before thought, he has built himself a nasty reputation and driven a wedge into his parent’s marriage. While they head to Mexico to work on their issues, Mike is facing the consequences of his actions. Thank goodness for Gramma.
Deciding to make better choices for himself, Mike resolves to build a relationship with his grandfather, but the old man isn’t going to make that easy. Can Mike break his habit of bad choices and figure out how to turn Grumps into Gramps and save his summer holidays?
