This was a great story. Humorous, sad, entertaining and very enjoyable to read. Joey Ambrosio is a children's book writer and illustrator. He has had a very successful career and is well known to many. He becomes even more well known when he climbs to the top of Brooklyn Bridge to spread his father's ashes. This starts what could be called "Joey's midlife crises". One of the major things he does is buy his childhood home that is located in a very seedy part of Brooklyn and have the bars on the windows removed. Not a really smart thing to do, Joey is white, probably the only one in the neighborhood. The story describes Joey's life both past and present and I enjoyed reading and living in Joey's world. Huge thanks to Lyrical Press and Net Galley for the approval and providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
If you read Shepherd Avenue, this an uplifting follow up of all the characters you love or hate. It puts an up beat closure to Joeys later years.
