    I passed on this book when it was first published because it seemed like nothing more than a trite imagining of rather mundane events of July 6, 1957. But author Jim O'Donnell pulls off the seemingly impossible with grace, gusto, and most importantly, accuracy. O'Donnell did exhaustive research and conducted endless interviews. Along with pitch-perfect atmospheric writing, and a great sense of place, he takes the reader back to 1950's Liverpool, into the working-class Woolten neighborhood as it appeared, right to the church fete where two teenagers with big dreams would briefly meet and eventually change the face of rock 'n roll. The author doesn't try to reach for anything that is not there, and his invention of dialogue is admirably small. Yet knowing how big the Beatles were to become, his hour-by-hour rendering of the day's events -- and dreams of the two boys involved -- seem hauntingly real. For true Beatles fans this book is must-reading with information found virtually nowhere else.
