Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
Joey Johnson hears voices but has no clue who they belong to and why he's the only person to hear them. What I like about this novel in which Joey's quest takes him to St. Augustine, is that all of the characters are believable. Joey has a brother he sometimes doesn't get along with, he meets a girl he really likes and his mother is always there for her children. But also this is a book for anyone who wants to know more about the country's oldest city. The author has written a story that moves quickly and has a nice ending that should lead to a series of novels about these characters.
