Read full description of the books:
Grant Hughes is asked by his grandfather to help him die if he is transferred to the terminal ward of the hospital. His grandfather couches this disturbing request in a story. Though its implications are inescapable, the story is Grandfather's way of giving Grant the option of not getting the message and not accepting the task.
Both of Grant's parents are lawyers. His father is remote, not only from Grant but also from his own father. Because Grant's grandfather does not feel he can ask his son to honor his last wishes, he turns to Grant as his only hope.
Stone Water is the honest, intelligent, and engaging story of a boy's confrontation with an adult decision. The book examines and illuminates the moral, ethical, and legal implications of an increasingly prominent and controversial human issue.
