Growing up is hard but Archer has three great men to look up to, his grandfather, his father and his uncle. Archer navigates elementary school and middle school with humor while getting gentle guidance from the men in his life. When he discovers his uncle and student teacher Mr. McLeod are a couple things get interesting. Matter-a-fact and moving this is a timely book about the limitless definition of love.
