"Full Cycle is a story of perseverance, of teamwork, and of looking beyond a disability to draw upon talents yet untapped. The well-paced story will keep you reading far too late into the night." -- Barb Szyszkiewicz, Reviewer's Bookwatch
"Full Cycle is a refreshing depiction of a normal home and family life. I particularly liked the depiction of the relationship between Alex and his father, Rob. In an age when there has been such a disconnect between Dads and their families, the book is inspiring, in a simple, natural way. It's a story with many little points of human insight and love that deserve to be savored." -- Michael Giesler, author of Junia, Marcus, and Grain of Wheat (Scepter Publishers, New York)
"[A] thoughtful, poignant and ultimately uplifting read. ... [Blunt] uses bicycling as the vehicle to explore coming-of-age themes focused on the burden of maturity and personal growth at every age, with a few surprising and thoughtful twists centered on ability and self-worth. Any reader over the age of ten will find something relatable in Full Cycle." -- Ariana Rundquist, Cascade Courier
Full Cycle is also the recipient of the Catholic Writers Guild Seal of Approval.
From the Author
Full Cycle is written at an adult level, with an adult-level length and vocabulary. Its primary audience is adults. However, the content is G-rated and perfectly appropriate for younger readers. Adolescents and pre-teens who read beyond the typical "Young Adult" genre will enjoy Full Cycle very much. The story is fast-paced, and Alex's character is eminently relatable for readers both young and old.
