So very honest and acute. How dependably the teenage rebel mind works at any age, or is tempted to! How love heals. How love expressed as a t'ai chi'd affection is powerful leverage for the bound and wary young heart. I like how Scott's coming-of-age is sandwiched between the relationships of father/teacher and their world, and Ina with hers. What a good psychologist Scott Cohen is. Thank you for this marvelous, ageless story, and for its flowing true-life style.
