If there is one thing I love, it’s featuring a long-time friend and follower.
It’s my absolute pleasure to present to you…
Genre(s): Teen & Young Adult, Coming of Age, Contemporary Fiction
Description: “Imagine J.D. Salinger, William Golding and Stephen King sitting down to write a fast-paced coming-of-age story set in a working class American neighborhood in the turbulent 1960s. A place where neighborhood boys routinely played baseball in the street; but also a place where, with one new arrival, they begin to discover the insignificance of their local intrigues compared to the realities and sometimes violent tribulations of life.
Albert Parker arrives in the neighborhood, bringing with him all the emotional scars and aggressive attitude a dysfunctional and abusive step-father could create. His struggle to fit in, and the stories of the other neighborhood children around him as he tries, create a fast-paced and powerful story about friendship, love and loss in the Vietnam era.
A new kid in the neighborhood. Family dysfunction. Murder, suicide and madness.You’ll find all that and more, in the fast-paced REICHOLD STREET, by R.L. Herron, a 2012 Readers Favorite Gold Medal Winner.”
