"Patrick, or Gay Uncle Patrick (GUP, for short), loves his niece, Maisie, and nephew, Grant. That is, he loves spending time with them when they come out to Palm Springs for visits. But in terms of caretaking and relating to two children, Patrick is honestly out of his league. So when tragedy strikes and Maisie and Grant lose their mother and Patrick's brother has a health crisis, Patrick finds himself taking on the role of primary guardian. Quickly realizing that parenting isn't solved with treats and jokes, Patrick's eyes are opened to a new sense of responsibility, and the realization that, sometimes, even larger than life means you're unfailingly human." --Page [4] of cover.
