... A highly personal and moving true story of friendship and remembrance from the New York Times best-selling author of Duty and Be True to Your School.
Growing up in Bexley, Ohio, population 13,000, Bob Greene and his four best friends, Allen, Chuck, Dan, and Jack, were inseparable. Of the four, Jack was Bob's very best friend, a bond forged from the moment they met on the first day of kindergarten. They grew up together, got into trouble together, learned about life together, and were ultimately separated by time and distance, as all adults are. But through the years Bob and Jack stayed close, holding on to the friendship that had formed years before.

Then the fateful call came: Jack was dying. And in this hour of need, as the closest of friends will do, Bob, Allen, Chuck, and Dan put aside the demands of their own lives, came together, and saw Jack through to the end of his journey.

Tremendously moving, funny, heart-stirring, and honest, And You Know You Should Be Glad is an uplifting exploration of the power of friendship to uphold us, sustain us, and ultimately set us free ...

Caught! Thank you so much for sending me this hardcover for my Little Free Library of Twinbrook (#7720). I’ll be delighted to put it there soon to offer to our visitors. If it’s not chosen, I’ll move it along to another local Little Free Library with higher traffic (but also one which my husband built!). I appreciate your generosity. I hope we get a journal entry from this book. Here’s hoping!

Enjoy the book!
