We all have our quirks. No doubt about that. Most of us can count on one hand the number of true friends that wouldn't walk away in our deepest time of need. Ellis Sayre and his friends, set in 1983 Boscobel, WI go on a journey together to escape a ruthless local crime boss. Danger lurks closer than you think. In the end, we learn the truth and this book has a straightforward way of being whimsical, adventurous, and humorous. As the catch phrase says, "We all have baggage. Our true friends help carry it." I won't tell much more than that. This is a great read inspired by S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders, Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer, and Stephen King's The Body (aka Stand by Me). Great read. I highly recommend it.

Right Handed Lefty by Ryan Coughlin This book took a while to get into, the meaning of the story comes in the last pages and is more poignant than as could be believed. A young orphan boy does not know the meaning of his existence. He had been placed and and placed so many times when his last foster parents adopted him, their dysfunctional relationship just added to his unease and lack of security. When a school bully attacked his best friend his participation in his defence caused them both to have Saturday school. The story starts mainly about the small two in the 1980’s but many of the prejudices and problems are profound. Things that today we would not see, impoverished families struggling to feed their children, racial injustices for Native Americans, and crime bosses in an age of less communication and more profit. The story shows that it’s not where you come from but who you are that define you.

This was an Ok story, a coming of age thriller of sorts that slowly draws you in. That was also the problem, it started off very slow and had a hard time picking up steam. I didn't really start getting into the story until about 45% in, while most would put down a story by that point I say you should keep going. You will be rewarded with a pretty interesting and heartwarming ending. Even though it was slow I did enjoy the writing style, Mr. Coughlin was very descriptive when describing the landscape, felt like I was right on that ledge on Granddad Bluff. Normally I'm all over Google Maps when reading location heavy books but with the way Mr. Coughlin wrote it I didn't need to, I could just see the forest and the carving in the tree. All in all, this is a good story about forgiveness, especially being able to forgive yourself, and finding the strength within. Received a free copy from NetGalley and been taking my time with reading this one
