Although the subject of race is (very!) lightly touched on, this book is about the summer in which a 15-year old boy confronts the issues of love, loyalty, courage, friendship, and inner moral character, while leaving boyhood behind and laying the groundwork for the man he will become.
There's an epilogue, too, to tell "how things all worked out," and in this case I thought it added a nice touch.
Can't recommend this one highly enough. 4.5 / 5, IMO. A great read!
Gary Frazier has outdone himself this time. I was bowled over by this book. I rarely give five stars to a book, but I did for this one
because, for books in its genre, it covers so many issues and handles them with dignity.
The story takes place long before the use of the word "gay" in it's present day connotation. The only terms used for a homosexual
individual were derogatory and inflammatory.
This book deals with physical disabilities, homosexuality, physical abuse of children, a teen with high morals and love for his family.
I could go on and on. I'd love to see this made into a movie.
I urge you to give it a try. I don't think you'll regret it.
I KNOW that all sounds very depressing, but the author manages to make the characters so POSITIVE that when you're finished, you are smiling.
It isn't labeled as such, but this would be an excellent novel for young adults. I recommend this realistic coming of age book to teens as well as adults!
What begins as a routine summer for Nelson, working at the gas station and hanging out with his friend Frankie on the Wolf river, quickly changes when Aunt Charity brings 14 year old Mary Alice to stay with her for the summer. Mary Alice is a blind orphan who normally resides at the orphanage. Nelson is smitten the moment he lays eyes on her.
As the summer progresses and love blooms, Nelson learns that Frankie has been harboring a secret that impacts both their lives. When a mysterious stranger arrives in town on a sleek black motorcycle danger arrives with him.
This is a wonderful story set in a time and place that is a story in itself. Bells Ferry is still working through the civil rights movement and Hurricane Camille is on her way. Nothing will be the same.
Frazier has created wonderful characters with many layers to them. They are well developed and I felt I knew each of them intimately. The story is well paced and compelling. I couldn't stop reading because I needed to know what would happen next. The suspense builds and holds you in it's grips. A fantastic read!
5 stars - Kate Farrell, The Kindle Book Review
I will not hesitate to 1-click any other books I find by this author.
I did enjoy Nelson's story, in large part because Nelson is such a real, believable and fully realized main character. I do think he would have struggled a bit more to become comfortable with Frankie's secret, but to me he really read as a teenaged boy, a good, responsible kid who wants to do the right thing and is bewildered by chaos that unexpectedly swirls around him the summer he turns 16.
