I was only four years old in 1939, but my parents took me to Atlantic City on many occasions in the ensuing years. This brings back all the memories of Steel Pier, the boardwalk, and the rolling chairs. The story itself is captivating which is narrated through the eyes of a 15 year old Jack Laurel. It involves first loves, mobsters, boardwalk entertainers, prostitutes, neighborhood bullies, and a fortune teller. The way the novel is written is easily followed and is impossible to put down.

I could not put this book down. I felt the raw emotions of each character as they became my friends. The smell of the ocean ran through my veins as I walked the boardwalk with Jack. If you have ever visited the Old Atlantic City with the Steel Pier, the High Diving Horse and the Dennis and Traymore Hotel this book will take you back to that era. I highly recommend this book. It is sure to become a movie. A MUST READ

This is a story for all ages. I know that I want my children, and when they are old enough, my grandchildren to read it. What a memorable tale for those of us who know Atlantic City and for those who want a look back into a simpler time. A time when there were no casinos, just wonderful characters who dotted the boardwalk scene. I loved this book. It gave me many hours of pleasure.

"A Boardwalk Story" sends you back to Atlantic City during the years when men wore suits and ladies wore dresses to walk the boards. Although the story is told through the eyes of a teenage boy, it does not lack sophistication and quality of adult characters. This novel is a quick page turner as you become engossed in the unique and interesting characters and events occuring. The characters in this book are unforgettable. I highly recommend it for all readers.

This book captured my interest from the very start. It was easy to relate to all the characters and become engaged by their surroundings and actions. The book allowed me to put myself right on the boardwalk of Atlantic City during the times before World War II. You could really feel the emotions of each of the characters. Looking forward to the sequel!
