The main character is 12-year old Archie Lane, a basketball whiz with an overactive imagination and a budding crush on his 13 year old neighbor, Sandra. When Archie thinks he sees the man next door murder his own son, Archie and Sandra are plunged into a series of adventures with lots of exciting twists and turns.
The historical setting is accurate and the author avoids stereotypes and instead relies on well rounded, interesting character. The dialogue is full of humor and Archie is a particularly memorable character. A good read. Highly recommended.
Using a suspense novel format, the author works in not only race relations, but also the early days of rock'n roll, a young man's passion for basketball and his first heart throb. A good book for middle school readers and any adult who might be interested in what it was like to grow up in the not so innocent 1950s.
