Hoadley sweetly sheds the taboo of a parent leaving the home (divorce, incarceration, addiction) and helps the child focus on his or her talents and see that their futures don’t rely on the actions of others, but from the decisions they choose to make and the direction they choose to follow in their own lives.
“One of the big taboo subjects among children… How do you tell a child when a parent, or the parent of a friend has to leave the family home? How do you tell a child about something adults don’t even want to discuss? Nobody wants to talk about it, until it happens to them. Queen Abby is a very sensitive and encouraging book about a sensitive subject”
