A heartwarming story of love, forgiveness, friendship, and the power of hope.
With no certainty of love or a family to claim him, Poor Boy was destined to end up just as he'd come into the world...alone; until he met Hope. With their willingness to accept each other just as they were and their friendship quickly at the forefront, Hope secures a place in his heart and leads him on a journey in search of a miracle that will forever shape his life. With a short but complicated life surrounded by hardship, tough love, laughter, and warmheartedness, Poor Boy was a determined ten-year-old and thanks to his upbringing, stubborn enough to see things through.
"I started writing this story while I was still working on my first novel, 'Sweeping with God'. I had some ideas that wouldn't leave me alone and I didn't feel would fit in with what I was actively working on, so I decided to follow them and let the story guide me; which is generally how I write anyway and it worked out really well with this story. This was an amazing experience for me and the characters within were really fun to watch rub off on one another, as well as leave me with so much joy and affection for their story." - Author note
"Amazing! 'Sugar' makes you believe in miracles; the characters have you believing in them. I couldn't put the book down, it was amazing!"
- Christine on, 'Sugar'
“Without reservation, I highly recommend ‘Sugar’ by Kevin Semeniuk. From the opening sentence to the last, it was a very compelling story indeed. Three cheers for Hope!"
- Sean on, 'Sugar'
"Another great book written by Kevin Semeniuk. It's funny how we forget the simple things in life; we forget to dream and we don't remember how to love. 'Sugar' brought those important things out of me. The author made it feel like I was the character 'Poor Boy' and it related to events in my own life; whether it was sharing a laugh or wiping a tear, he connects with his readers and you feel the emotions that the characters feel, and that in itself is amazing. I highly recommend this novel."
