Editorial Reviews

Review

KIRKUS Reviews calls Wicked Good "A funny, frazzled tale of extreme parenting."

Rory Falcon is a bundle of exasperating eccentricities-perpetual pacing,mile-a-minute talkativeness, an obsession with lawn mowers and antiquegas cans, an incorrigible refusal to follow instructions or tolerateconstraints--combined with a good heart that only his adoptive motherArcher can see. But as he pushes 16 years old, his quirks escalate todrinking, joyriding and muscular rages that can end with him blackeninghis mom's eye. Archer, a frantically multitasking lawyer who's up for ajudgeship, blames her mothering skills for Rory's behavior becausethere's no one else to blame--least of all her ex-husband Wayne, a whiny man-child still looking to break into a theatre career. Then Rory and a high school hellion named Trish hare off in a stolen car to find Rory's birth mother, and Archer embarks on a journey to recover her son andunearth buried family secrets that stretch all the way back to the Salem Witch Trials. In this entertaining dysfunction romp, the authors cutthe pathos with tart humor and vivid characterizations. Hurricane Roryis an indelible portrait of a high-functioning autistic kid who's bothoff-putting and magnetic; veering between wild, foul-mouthed tantrums,plangent sweetness and locked-down obliviousness, he's as much a mystery to himself as to everyone else.

----KIRKUS REVIEWS

From the Author

People frequently ask how it came to be that two sisters wrote a noveltogether and what it was like to work as a team. The answers are"simple" and "great."

It was March. The snow was dirty brown andthe sun was absent in Bangor, Maine. Amy was spending a lot of time onher sofa, channel surfing and landing nowhere.Joanne called from her home in Florida. "Wanna write a book together?"

Amy wrapped an afghan around her and yawned from lack of blood flow to herbrain. "Sure," was the best response she could muster.

Amy is alawyer by day and single mom to two teenage boys by day and night. Heroldest is diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism which has been of mixed blessings to her life.

Joanne is also a lawyer and the literary brains behind this outfit. Amy can only write based uponher life experiences. Without Joanne moving the plot along, Wicked Goodwould be nowhere. On the other hand, Amy has the experience. Her son isnow 19 years old. Life has been a challenge for both of them. Theincidents in the novel Wicked Good are fiction. But many of thecharacteristics of the mother and son have basis in authenticity. Forexample, once Amy's son gets an idea in his head, it is tough todissuade him otherwise. As another example, juggling his needs withAmy's job truly stresses her out and the bathtub is a frequent refuge.However, he has never hit Amy and Amy does not have a drinking problem.

Writing Wicked Good together has brought us closer. We are working on the second novel in the series called Wicked Wise. We hope you enjoy Wicked Good.
