Motherwild is an excellent tale about daily life for Joey Cantell over the 1 year period of 1959-1960.

Author Ken Rivard does an excellent job creating a believable and relatable character in Joey. Not only does the main character go through bits of adolescent growth during the story, he has to go through this period with a very dysfunctional family. The mother is an alcoholic who verbally lashes out at Joey and his siblings for what appears to be no reason at all. The father’s way of dealing with life’s problems is to walk away or take a nap.

This story follows Joey Cantell from his confusing interactions with his immediate family members to his neighbors downstairs and other real characters introduced during the narrative. Any reader who has gone through life with an addicted family member will relate to the struggles faced by Joey and his siblings.

This is a beautiful book that is sure to tug at the heartstrings of readers everywhere.
