Book 3 of 4 of the Herring Cove Road seriesWith Blue's father in prison for selling marijuana and his mother estranged for over the last seven years, Blue is doing well, all considering. As the second addition to the not-so-nuclear Dixon family of Lisa, her ten-year-old son, Dwight, and the retired, Jewish introvert, Av, Blue finds himself living in a much better area of Halifax, Nova Scotia, going to a much better school and for the first time, actually applying himself academically as he struggles to fit in. All that's soon threatened when Blue's estranged mother returns to take him away, and around the same time, he's harassed and threatened by his father's affiliation with the very dangerous, local biker gang to whom his father owes money. Blue, his surrogate family, and Dwight's recent overachieving classmate/friend, Lyon, are forced to deal with the quickly escalating problems that threaten both the family unit and its members.

About the Author
Michael Kroft considers himself an accidental novelist. Being a writer of short stories of various genres, his initial story of Mr. Rosen and His 43Lb Anxiety started out as a simple short story, but because of his love for the characters, the work grew into a full novel.
With his newfound love for writing novels, Michael turned his first novel, On Herring Cove Road: Mr. Rosen and His 43Lb Anxiety, into the not-so-nuclear family saga series Herring Cove Road, with each following novel also in the contemporary and family saga genres but with subgenres of a Murder Mystery, Crime, and a love story.
With the series Herring Cove Road completed, Michael is now working on the first novel of an amusing, heartwarming and historically-accurate family saga that begins with an English immigrant, William Lovely, and his younger brother, James, coming to America in 1715 through indentured servitude, and then follows the future nine generations up until 1905. The series is tentatively called The Lovely American Family Tree, and the first novel in the series is tentatively titled Indentured Love.
Michael Kroft is from Halifax, Nova Scotia, single and, apparently, with too much time on his hands.
