Royce (aka Rolly) is having a bad year. Not only has his mother dragged him across the country in order to be close to her aged father Arthur, a celebrated cellist, but he's also recovering from mono. When he convinces his mother to let him finish the school year by correspondence, he's left feeling isolated and lonely, and spends his time watching TV and plotting ways to get back to his friends in Nova Scotia. But before his plans can be implemented, his grandfather has a small stroke. Suddenly Arthur needs more care than Royce's mother can provide and, after a couple of hired care aides quit, Royce is pressed into service.No reference check, which seems unwise to me. ... though hea#39;s really old, would still want to be looked after by someone young and hot, but since no one of that description applied for the job, ... shea#39;s trained as a care aide and shea#39;s super- motivated, since shea#39;s trying to save money to bring her husband and kids to Canada.
