When thirteen-year-old Nathan loses both his parents, Social Services seems likely to be his next stop. Surprisingly, his maternal grandfather, a freewheeling soul if ever there was one, steps in to offer guardianship and support. Can Grampa nurture the young teen appropriately? Will Grampa help Nathan navigate the trauma he suffered at the hands of his abusive father? Does Grampa understand what happens at school? Can he advise Nathan about girls and dating and sex? Can Nathan live up to his grandfather's principles?

Although Grampa is a pot-smoking, latte-drinking, porch-sitting kind of guy, he is also a force to be reckoned with. Having rejected many of society's norms for himself, how will he react if Nathan chooses not to follow his lead? Will Grampa's stories, outlook on life, and unique philosophies be sufficient to guide Nathan through all life has to offer-the good, the bad, and the otherwise? Will Grampa's powerful example provide the tools that Nathan needs to become the man he wants to be?

Grampa's Way is a simple coming of age tale for Nathan and a heartwarming story about a boy and his grandfather. This story offers an alternative way to think about the structure of family, to imagine wealth, and to exist as individuals in an often complex and hurtful world. Grampa's Way encourages respect, acceptance, kindness, and generosity as lifelong pursuits.
