"Every Family has their hidden crackpot."

"I had not read an entire book in years. I had tried, but I kept failing to get through them. Just could not find one that made me want to go back to it. Well, that all changed with Frank. My wife was surprised when I told her I had finished it already.

Coming of age is my favorite type of movie and now I realized that in books it is also. My favorite books of all time are The Catcher In The Rye and then The Outsiders which admittedly are on different levels when compared to each other. I think I am going to have to seek out a few more books of that genre.

Many thanks to the author for reminding me how fun it can be to once again read a book you can't put down because you are dying to find out what happens next.

One thing it left me wondering, if I don't have a Frank in my family, does that mean I am Frank?"

“5+ Star. This is honestly the first book that I have read in quite some time. I’m glad this is the one I chose to start back up with because I could not put it down. The detail is unbelievable. Like watching a movie. Thank you Joe Gibbs.”

“ of the best coming of age novels I have ever read. It is sensitive, funny, insightful and moving. Both Frank and Brogan will live on in your readers’ imagination. And the ending is pitch perfect”
