A Father’s Son came out in 2013 and is a unique book from Richard Harris that is worth checking out! This is a fictional story and is about a boy that is growing up in the world and may not always have the most solid of support while doing so.

The main character of Justin Maloney has had a rocky family life. His dad has been battling addiction for a long time and doesn’t have a steady job. In 1988, his mother was arrested. It was September, and the only thing worse than hanging around the division for as long as he did was going to his father’s place in a police car.

The teen is a phenomenon when it comes to hockey. At fourteen years old, this kid has to go and live with his father because he has no other choice. Located in the downtown part of Toronto, it’s the last thing that he wants to have to do.

Rick Maloney is having a tough time of it. He has his demons but he also wants to be a good parent to his kid. After all, his son is the only child that he has. It would be nice to be responsible and caring, but he’s an addict.

He quickly betrays his good intentions and starts to descend into the darkness. He will end up having to choose whether he wants to face the old demons that he has always lost to or whether he is going to keep going until he hits rock bottom or worse.

Justin is forced to be an adult earlier than he should be. Will his father recover or will this anti-hero be the greatest inspiration for him to grow and be different? Dealing with betrayal, love, and the fight for identity, this is the story of a child and a parent told to its fullest. Pick up a copy of A Father’s Son to see how it ends.
