If you're looking for a good solid read then "Sticks and Stones" should be your reading choice. This story showcased characters that at first appeared to have moved on in their current lives, but as the story unfolds it seems the past sometimes holds the key to unlock buried resentments or happiness.

The characters were realistic, but at times I found myself getting confused about which character said what. I had to re-read too many lines, to get the concept of who said what. Although, I did like the transitions between the four main characters.
Overall, it took way too long to get to the 'good' parts, and I found myself bored and just trying to finish the book. I was anxiously waiting for the climax, which I never received.
This is the first time reading an Eric Pete book. I'm not too anxious about reading another one no time soon.
Solomon was very quiet and invisible in high school. He was always lurking around, but he knew and saw everything inside the walls of Marion High. Solomon remained in his hometown after graduation and became a manager at Walgreens. He's now divorced and the father of two children. After getting fired from his job, he attends the class reunion with an ulterior motive.
Janet was the popular, head cheerleader who dated the most popular athlete. Her dream was to marry him and have children, but he broke up with her. She moves to Las Vegas, and becomes an exotic dancer. At the reunion, she will be able to find out why he dumped her, but will she be able to handle the truth?
Karim, a red-headed, skinny, smart nerd was always getting beat up by some of his former classmates. Now he's a sexy, famous music video producer, and he is going to the reunion to get the girl he had eyes for in high school.
Pete wrote about situations that happened to many people during their high school years and how those situations affect them as adults. The characters are so explosive; they come to life. I was able to feel their emotional struggles through high school. STICKS AND STONES is a definite page-turner of secrets and self-discovery.
