His Father Still
By Tim Hollister

"His Father Still is Tim Hollister's painfully frank account of life with his son, Reid, who died at age 17 in 2006 when he crashed his car while hurrying to get friends home before curfew. After the accident, Hollister learned that automobile crashes are the number one cause of teen death, and in retrospect, he questions whether he managed to strike the complicated balance between permissive and protective when parenting Reid, with 'the sparkling aqua-blue eyes.' May Hollister's soul-searching serve as a cautionary tale for every reader."
