This is the continuation of the story of Stephen and his friend Ben. If someone asked me what this story was about, I'd say it was about determining what it means to be a man when your role models are terrible or absent. And then I'd cringe because it sounds like such a cliched description -- but then I'd just have to live with it, because it really is a great description of the story and Wells writes in such an engaging and sensitive way that it never once feels like a cliche.
This is a story that is perfectly appropriate for young teenagers, but it never feels whitewashed to be appropriate. It simply presents how people actually live and it's got the perfect mixture of humor, thoughtfulness, and plot.
I haven't yet been disappointed by anything that Wells writes and this story is no exception.
A touching and unforgettable story that will tug at your heart strings. This is another winning novel by this talented author.
Characters that people can actually relate to since they are not perfect as is the case in many novels. These characters make mistakes, they get scared, angry, jealous and act the way teenagers their age would, which is why they are so likeable.
Nothing in this novel was rushed, the story-line was excellent and the ending added an unexpected turn of events. It is a perfect summer read.
Being older than Stephen, Ben teaches him about girls, life, and protects him from bullies and jealous boyfriends, but during a trip to a campground to see Stephen's girl, their friendship takes a dangerous turn.
Mr. Wells is a master of suspense, keeping you on the edge of your seat as Ben hops the freight trains and finally talks Stephen into doing it with him. Realistic action and characters that inhabit your mind long after you've finished reading leave you wanting more.
I found a few grammatical errors here and there, but nothing which would detract from the flow of the story, and certainly nothing that couldn't be remedied by a light edit. My interest in this book was because, like my novel, it had to do with bullying, and once I started reading book one, and throughout book two, I literally couldn't put it down. Producing characters that jump off the page, action that makes your heart beat faster, and romance that makes you remember younger days, show talent which makes Mike Wells a masterful storyteller. Great job, Mr. Wells. Danny Dean, author, "Sock Full Of Pennies".
