Letters to a Shooting Star by Keith Hale

Letters to a Shooting Star follows Arkansas country boy Ben Goodman through childhood and adolescence, focusing primarily on the period when he crosses paths with the book's other protagonists, Pennsylvania-raised brothers Ethan and Daniel Henry. Each boy has a compelling story, and when the stories are set side-by-side, then merged, the result is both heartwarming and hopeful. The book is both a coming of age novel and a love story told in fine, understated Southern tradition, reminiscent of Eudora Welty and Flannery O'Connor.

This is one of those books that will absolutely erase at least 2 days of your life; it's that gripping. The story of Ben; what a beautiful book!! It had everything. I laughed, I cried, I held my breath , I ached and celebrated! Such a beautifully written book. I almost want to see Ben continue his story and want to know more of his life. Thank you Keith. A great read.
