HOW CAN YOU LOVE SOMEONE AND RESENT HIM AT THE SAME TIME?
Jake Moon used to love the time he spent with his grandfather, Skelly, but that was before Skelly got Alzheimer's disease. All of a sudden, it's as if Skelly is the kid, and Jake has to be the grown-up. Much of Skelly's care becomes Jake's responsibility, and that doesn't leave much time for a life of his own.
Then, one day Jake rebels, and the unthinkable happens. Has Jake discovered too late how much his grandfather still means to him?

From the Inside Flap:

Approx. 2 hours, 2 cassettes

Life hasn't been the same for Jake Moon since his grandfather Skelly was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. For one thing he can't invite friends over because Skelly might do something embarrassing like tell them to zipper their "briskets," or Jake might reach into the freezer for a can of frozen orange juice and find frozen pajamas instead. It's like all of a sudden he's the grown-up, and Skelly's the kid. How could one person you could always count on be fading away right before your eyes?
