Loved the book! Couldn't put it down. Stayed up until 3 am. I am familiar with the places Mr. West wrote about which made it even better! Very well written. I can't wait for his next book! Soon I hope!

This soaring debut weaves a foggy web around the San Francisco Bay Carquinez Bridge . . . a fog readers soon dread as emotions escalate at Bridgetown High. Distinctions of class, race, geography, and the 1960s generation of draft dodgers unfold in relationships that curve, bend, and crash around needs for revenge. The surprising edge-of-your-seat ending doesn’t go away.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This one starts out with a bang. The main character of our story Mark, loses his family in a fatal car accident. He goes to live with his grandmother and has to start over at a new school. The beginning is tragic and the story kept its momentum all the way to the end. It’s a story full of love, anger, revenge, drugs, death and more. And it all happens in high school.
The author does a great job of weaving a tail of what life in the 1960’s was like. My only downfall, and I put this on myself, is that the author really took to heart how the dialogue was written in this story. They did a good job of showcasing how people speak when English is not their native language. And I found myself having to get out of correction mode and just read the story.
This story did have me hooked from beginning to end. I don’t want to give anything away, but I can say that love, drama, action, suspense, and even mystery played a part and I loved every word.

4.5 Stars out of 5
It is hard to believe that this book is this author’s debut novel. I have to say the author’s note referencing that the setting behind this story takes place in the mid-1960’s, had me nervous going in. However, I have to be honest, the way this author wrote this story I didn’t feel lost or unaware of the surroundings within. The start to this story nearly broke my heart. AND THAT WAS ONLY THE FIRST PAGE! After that I knew I would not be able to put this book down. The story is told in multiple POV’s which I happened to enjoy a great deal.

I do not want to say much or give anything away because this one needs to be read going in blindly. I will say, once I got to that Aha moment I was floored. I really enjoyed the how the author used words, landmarks and life events to describe a setting or scene so that I really could imagine how it was in the 60’s. I can tell that this author researched a lot and put a lot of effort into this book. The conversations and language used in the book is how I would have expected it to be like in the 60’s. Like the close family unit, people’s view points on the Vietnam War and music.

Mark’s pain, anguish, grief, rage and guilt over the loss of his parents and sister is felt on every page. I can’t imagine losing my family in such a tragic way, but his author was able to have me emotionally connect so much that I felt like I was there with him sharing his pain. Mark’s need for revenge of the person responsible for their death was palpable. The three characters that surround this book were very well developed. Mark, Gina and Jeff each have a story to tell and while their lives are connected in some way. As the year unfolds secrets, manipulation and danger will follow the lives of these 3 teenagers.

I enjoyed getting to know the characters in this book. We meet seventeen year-old Mark Wilkerson attending the funeral of his parents and little sister and learn they were killed in a car accident on Christmas eve that he and his other younger sister survived. The story follows him as he deals with this immense tragedy by trying to find out exactly what happened and who was responsible. There is a message about forgiveness and healing in this book.

This is a good novel in the young adult genre and the author has a great understanding of the teenage years with all their complicated emotions involving friendships, love interests, and learning where one belongs in the swirling sea of on again-off again romances. I found the minute details of who was going to the Junior Prom with whom somewhat tiring, but I understand the method behind the madness. I also questioned whether seniors would go the Junior Prom at all, but traditions may be different on the west coast where the story takes place and the east coast where I attended high school over a quarter century ago.

I liked the emphasis on forgiveness from a Christian standpoint. I enjoyed the parental wisdom of Mark’s grandmother, who courageously takes over the care of Mark and his sister while dealing with the death of her son, daughter-in-law, and grandchild. She often quotes her mother and one of the best is “’what we see today as a tragedy, we may look back at tomorrow as a blessing’”. Of course Mark balks at this advice, but the reader hopes he will one day accept what has happened and begin to enjoy life again. He does, and the reader gets to go along for the ride.

I gave this novel four stars because I felt the ending, which I will not reveal, left the reader asking too many questions.
