Diversion Press presents Grounded
GROUNDED is the realistic portrayal of a boy who reads comic books, plays video games, vandalizes, chooses bad friends, breaks school rules, and frustrates his well-meaning parents. But GROUNDED is also not moralistic, nor is it a case study of a highly disturbed child. Instead, the main character's main challenge is to mature in a world filled with opportunities to make unwise choices—the same struggle that most young people face. GROUNDED examines Donny's decisions, but also the consequences of the decisions made by the adults around him.
