Reader’s Review


The Prince of Denial, by Doug Wilhelm
I first became aware of Doug Wilhelm’s work by reading The Revealers and True Shoes, two excellent books dealing with the problem of bullying in middle schools, as seen through the eyes of the victims.
The Prince of Denial tackles the problem of addiction – in this case a parent’s alcoholism. The narrator of the story is Casey, a thirteen-year-old, middle school-aged boy. The reader gets a thorough understanding of the complexities of this young man’s life as he is faced with major problems he isn’t prepared to handle. The dialogue and description of Casey’s feelings are beautifully written.
I recommend this book highly. The Prince of Denial will help create understanding for those whose lives have not been touched by addiction. And for those who have had to secretly deal with addictive behavior of a family member, they will find relief in not feeling alone, and in discovering resources for trying to solve their dilemma.
