Glasshopper Review: “A stirring coming-of-age novel”

Glamour Glasshopper Review Nov 09

“This stirring coming-of-age novel evokes the strictures of the ’50s and the tacky flamboyance of the ’80s brilliantly.  Narrated through 13-year-old Jake’s eyes, it’s a heartbreaking redemptive tale of family secrets that will take you on an emotional rollercoaster.  Arm yourselves with a box of Kleenex as you’ll be weeping into your pillow by the end.”
