In Christopher Meeks's "The Brightest Moon of the Century," Edward, a young Minnesotan, is blessed with an abundance of "experience"-first when his mother dies and next when his father, an encyclopedia salesman, shoehorns Edward into a private boys school where he's tortured and groomed.

What can I say about THE BRIGHTEST MOON OF THE CENTURY? I can say that it is an exceptional novel. The main character, Edward and I have so much in common (born around the same time, had a step-mother, was taunted in school, and dreamed of going to Hollywood), so I could relate where he was come from. Watching him grow from an awkward 14 year old to the 45 year husband and father, you can feel his transformation. Christopher Meeks separates Edward's life in stages and we experience with him the joy and pain of growing up, life in college, self-employment, tragedy and friendships. Mr. Meeks writes a terrific debut novel.

Traveling the rocky road of adolescence right with Edward, it was fun, sad and reassuring for all who have been on that trip.  The real treat was knowing that he made it through.  The humor Meeks lends to the story makes the characters very credible.   I highly recommend The Brightest Moon of the Century.  It is a must read for those who love a great story.
