I truly recommend this book (and Two Ways To Sunday). You will spend your time laughing and a little sad.You may even know someone like the main character. Even reading about his misery will keep you involved in the characters life of adventure. A very good read!
Everyone has a dream in their lives, but what are some people willing to do or willing to lose in order to accomplish that dream? That's the question explored in author Tom Starita's novel, Growth and Change Are Highly Overrated. Here is the synopsis:
Growth and Change Are Highly Overrated is a classic coming-of-age story that takes a unique and comic look at what we all fear— having to grow up and abandon our dreams. For a charismatic man like Lucas James, life is a breeze because everyone else provides the wind. This man-child front man for a mediocre cover band has been mooching off of his fiancée Jackie for years until she finally decides she's had enough. Faced with the reality of having no income to support his carefree lifestyle, Lucas James abandons his principles and gets a job working in the stockroom at, “That Store.” How does he cope with this new found sense of responsibility? He casually steals... In a life spent bucking authority how will Lucas James deal with his manager, 'Victor the Dictator'? How long can he survive Ralph, a starry-eyed coworker who desires nothing more than to be best friends? Will Lori, a twenty-something cashier, be like everyone else and fall for his charms? Will he ever find a place to live? And is “growing up” just another way of saying “selling out?” With this hilarious and engaging novel, author Tom Starita perfectly captures a character we have all met and perhaps some of us know all too well.
When you read this novel, you'll quickly realize that we all know a Lucas James. He's the kind of guy who abhors responsibility, challenges authority and is willing to use anyone to achieve their goals, and yet they work under the guise of being "free" and yet everyone around him feels drawn to him and his personality. That is who Lucas James is, and as he narrates his story, you'll learn how he became the man he is today, and how he relates to those around him.
This is a journey of a man with a dream, and the consequences of pursuing that dream. The story itself is highly entertaining, and written with a fresh, unique voice from author Tom Starita. The brutal honesty of Lucas James to the reader while showcasing the lies he's willing to tell to the people around him are a fantastic source of irony, and the very realistic depiction of not just a wannabe rock star, but of a person who's dream trumps any and all relationships and responsibilities, makes this a must read novel that readers will not want to miss.
Overall, this was a fantastic read. Often times it was funny, other times dramatic and sad. The tale of Lucas James is a familiar one, and yet it's presented in a new and exciting way, and that's why I give Growth and Change Are Highly Overrated by Tom Starita a 9/10 rating. Be sure to pick up your copies of this amazing novel today!

This book is a good example of why I wish Amazon would allow for half ratings. To me this a strong 3.5.Read more
