Prince of Pot by Tanya Lloyd Kyi

Into the Wild

Read Prince of Pot Online Free - Isaac loves art class, drives an old pickup, argues with his father and hangs out with his best buddy, Hazel. But his life is anything but normal. His parents operate an illegal marijuana grow-op, Hazel is a bear that guards the property, and his family’s livelihood is a deep secret.

It’s no time to fall in love with the daughter of a cop.

Isaac’s girlfriend Sam is unpredictable, ambitious and needy. And as his final year of high school comes to an end, she makes him consider a new kind of life pursuing his interest in art, even if that means leaving behind his beloved home in the Rockies and severing all ties with his family.

For a while he hopes he can have it all, until a disastrous graduation night, when Sam’s desperate grab for her father’s attention suddenly puts his entire family at risk.

Pro: I loved Isaac's voice. He was honest and real, and well developed. I liked discovering all the different parts of him. Pro: Isaac's family was different, but there was a lot of love. There were many events which clearly showed how much this family cared for each other. They were not best com...

It certainly represents a voice of the marijuana industry that isn't completely accepted nor is it the demon it once was, this tells the story of Isaac who lives remotely in Canada on his family's pot farm with all of the dangerous secrets that entails. And it's not allowing him to be all he trul...

This was interesting! A way different take on illegal pot farming. I never gave any thought to the kids who may live on those farms. It way well be like this for them... Isolating. Really interesting read for all ages.

Prince of Pot was fantastic! I loved the characters, the use of setting, and the way Tanya Lloyd Kyi is able to weave so much into this story! It's topical, it's engaging from start to finish, and it's totally relatable. Now I want a bear for a pet (not really, but still. So cool.)

Isaac has always kept to himself and flown beneath the radar at school. His secrecy has little to do with his personality but more to do with his family and how they make a living. His father grows pot in the Canadian wilderness where they keep a cabin, living alongside bears, and he has learned...

I loved Prince of Pot. From beginning to end, I was entirely immersed in its complex and relatable characters, and also their complicated circumstances. This is yet another example of Kyi's masterful character building -- Isaac, Sam, and Isaac's family members will stick with you long after you f...
