The Avocado Tree (Biographies & Memoirs)
2 chapters   —   updated Jul 28, 2012 02:02PM
Description: What's a boy to do when hindsight is 20/20? The Avocado Tree is a coming-of-age memoir told from the adult vantage point of Shon Franklin, who on a quest for forgiveness, clarity, and resolve, recounts his seemingly normal eleven year old life, gone awry, circa 1984. Just when he comes to terms with his parent’s recent divorce, Shon’s mother, Sharon, leaves her parental obligations in Inglewood, California behind for the fast life back in her hometown of Chicago, leaving ex-husband, Earl Jr. to raise Shon and his two young siblings. Now a seemingly motherless child, Shon must learn to cope with abandonment, family misfortune, and congenital dysfunction, all while sorting through life’s formative lessons in love, sex, street ethics, and moral character.

Remember that you own what happened to you. If your childhood was less than ideal, you may have been raised thinking that if you told the truth about what really went on in your family, a long bony white finger would emerge from a cloud and point to you, while a chilling voice thundered, "We *told* you not to tell." But that was then. Just put down on paper everything you can remember now about your parents and siblings and relatives and neighbors, and we will deal with libel later on.Anne Lamott
