The timing for this book is perfect. It explores the emotional challenges and changes that both family and veterans face in an often overlooked cost of war. I can imagine some excellent class debates about war itself, about disabilities—both physical and learning— and overcoming life changes. This inspires me to look into some organizations that benefit the families of veterans.

I think Donavan’s Double Trouble is a really enjoyable read. As Donavan faces his feelings about his uncle, the reader is given insight about how it may feel to be in his shoes.

This is a tale of a little boy growing up maybe a little differently than everyone thought. But in his growing, he finds a way to cope with that pesky math and he learns that his uncle is still there for him. All told, a very good read with some valuable lessons as well.

I give this book 4 stars for its timely topic, the family structure it portrayed, and the life lessons the story illustrated. My daughter is not into sports, but she enjoyed the book and following Donovan & his buddies! It also gave us lots of opportunities to talk about real life issues.
This was a nice feel good book!
