NEW RELEASE 2019

DADDY WON’T LET MOM DRIVE THE CAR: TRUE TALES OF PARENTING IN THE DARK

BY: JO ELIZABETH PINTO (COPYRIGHT 2019)

 

SYNOPSIS

 

“So Sarah?” the teacher asked, in a question I had rehearsed with her, “what’s it like to have a blind mom?”

“Well,” my little girl said, in an unrehearsed answer, “it’s like a regular mom, except Daddy won’t let her drive his car.”

With that nonchalant reply in front of her second grade class, Sarah summed up the  way my blindness has fit into the fabric of our family. It isn’t a problem; it isn’t even a novelty; it’s just part of how we roll. My blindness has changed a few practical logistics. But in the end, kids are kids and moms are moms, and the dents and delights of parenthood are universal. As I told my daughter when she was very small, putting an only slightly different spin on the words my mom had said to me thirty years before, “The eyes in my face are broken, but the ones in the back of my head work just fine.”

COVER DESCRIPTION (FOR VISUALLY CHALLENGED READERS)

 

The title, “Daddy Won’t Let Mom Drive the Car” appears at the top, and “True Tales of Parenting in the Dark” and the author and illustrator names “Jo Elizabeth Pinto” and “N. Page” are written in the cement squares of the driveway. The family car is backing out of the driveway. Dad is standing by, looking half amused and half distressed. A cat is on the other side of the car, with an arched back and a puffy tail. Under one tire, some daisies are squashed and others are flying. The license plate says, “Blind101” and a bumper sticker says, “Mom Power.”

SYNOPSIS

 

What is a family? Rick Myers is a despondent seventeen-year-old who just lost his parents in a car wreck. His family is now the four teenage buddies he’s

grown up with in a run-down apartment building. Fast with their fists, flip with their mouths, and loyal to a fault, “the crew” is all he has.

At least he thinks so until he meets Daisy, an intelligent, independent, self-assured blind girl. Her guts in a world where she’s often painfully vulnerable

intrigue Rick, and her hopeful outlook inspires him to begin believing in himself.

But when the dark side of Daisy’s past catches up with her, tragedy scatters the crew and severely tests Rick’s resolve to build his promising future.

Fortunately, his life is changed by a couple with a pay-it-forward attitude, forged out of their personal struggle with grief and loss. Their support makes

all the difference to Rick and eventually to the ones he holds most dear as they face their own challenges.

“The Bright Side of Darkness” is a story of redemption and the ultimate victory that comes from the determination of the human spirit.
