Overview


Take one Texan adolescent. Move him to suspicious London for a summer. Mix in a quest for experience and a mysterious older girl. The result? This fantastic hardcover debut from Eddie de Oliveira.

Johnny Hazzard's an American boy living in London for the summer. He's not used to being a foreigner, and even less used to fending for himself. Then he meets an older girl named January and suddenly his quest for experience is taking some unexpected turns.
This is a novel about growing up American, growing up in the world, and growing up in the face of love. Eddie de Oliveira writes with vim, vigor, and verve about coming of age in our very uncertain, complicated age.

This book was a wonderful fiction novel about a tenn's life. Johnny Hazzard discovers who he is and who he wants to become. This was a great coming of age novel and impressively lacked the corniness that these book normally include. The realistic experiences and even racy topics made it a work of art.
