Overview

His father writes confessions and jokes, and the biggest joke of all is his name--Justin Tyme. But Jay, as he prefers to be called, hasn't had much to laugh about in the years since his mother died. His father retreats into an alcohol-hazed world of denial and self-pity, reversing their care-giver roles, and forcing Jay to grow up virtually on his own. Then, they move to O'Shea, where his father manages a mobile home park, and Jay begins yet another year as the "new kid" in school. He has a lot to learn--about life, his father, and himself, but most of all, about love. And it all begins the day Jay meets Cindy Hamilton...

Editorial Reviews

Anonymous Reviewer
Just In Time For Love is more than a novel of first love, it is essentially about relationships. There are conflicts to be resolved, misunderstandings to straighten out, and enough action to satisfy the most demanding reader. It's an engaging book, one that engages the mind, presents new solutions to old problems, and gives the world a thoroughly likable hero in Jay Tyme.
