OK, this is my revised review. I finally had a chance to get back with Penny and Jake, and it was well worth it! Totally in agreement with the other reviews here and I'm upping my star rating to five. This is a great example of using the power of story to convey profound and sometimes difficult concepts without preaching, philosophizing, or metafizzling. It is comforting and inspirational on the order of Garth Stein's The Art of Racing in the Rain, a book I keep gifting. Thanks, Meg, for a great resource, as well as a great read!
Along with the eye-opening story, Meg’s book has wonderful descriptions of Eureka, Arkansas, where it all takes place.
I read it while traveling to visit my family for the holidays and it was a great companion.
Penny (17) died in 1952. On Magnetic/Main there stood the Magnetic Ice Cream Parlor & Diner owned by Hank & Molly since the middle 70’s. Molly could not have children.
It had every kind of Coca Cola memorabilia you could think of.
They lived in a house right next door.
Penny was stuck at the Parlor/Diner for all eternity.
Jake Thatcher (bad boy biker) was barreling down Highway # 62 on his way to Eureka Springs.
Sheriff Jimmy was investigating a very bad motorcycle wreck.
Jake managed to get to the Magnetic Ice Cream Parlor & Diner & Penny made him a cheeseburger & served him Blue Bell ice cream.
Katie (maid, Crescent Hotel, died 1900) & Silas (convict, died 1920) also tend to hang out there also.
Jake (aka the Rake) was quite the prankster.
Sheriff Jimmy was investigating a different kind of motorcycle incident.
Later 1 night at the Magnetic Ice Cream Parlor & Diner there was a crusty ice cream bowl left on the table.
There was Sheriff Jimmy again.
Hank & Molly swore no 1 broke in & the door was still locked.
A psychic known as Angelina the Magnificent was called in.
Will Angelina figure out the mystery?
How about Sheriff Jimmy?
& what about Penny & Jake?
Since Twilight Zone, & Alfred Hitchcock aren’t around I bet Steven King would love this.
I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.
A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great movie, animated cartoon, PP presentation or paid-per-view mini TV series (A & E, History channel). There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.
