Lee Anne Cook AVID First Six Weeks
A father and son battle to stay alive in a post apocalyptic world as they follow the road to the coast. They must hide from men who have allowed their evil nature to dominate and attempt to find other humans who are inherently good. Will they survive in this harsh world and find others like themselves who carry "the fire," or will they be hunted and eaten by men who have forsaken all rules of civilization?
"The Road' explores the themes of survival, love binds us together, and the co-existence of good and evil in the world. I would recommend this book to all fathers and their sons.
We're taught to expect unconditional love from our parents, but I think it is more the gift our children give us. It's they who love us helplessly, no matter what or who we are.”
