Overview

Taylor Marx has it all - he's a popular high school quarterback, a huge hit with the ladies, and he's part of a family that literally has most of the town they live in working for them. But to whom much is given much can be taken away, and before Taylor is through, he'll go on a globe spanning journey to reunite with Maria, the only girl he's ever truly loved.
After his Dad ends up on the wrong end of some serious legal charges, he commits suicide, leaving Taylor and his Mom, Sue-Ann, no choice but to move to Florida to move in with his grandparents, Timothy and Clair.
When his spiteful grandfather has Maria's parents deported back to Argentina, it sets in motion a chain of events no one could have ever predicted. Taylor ends up on the run, bouncing from job to job, until being in the wrong place at the wrong time sees him wrongly convicted for a crime he didn't commit.
This globe spanning romance travels three different continents as fate seemingly conspires to keep Taylor and Maria apart. Will Taylor ever see the outside of a cell ever again? If so, will Maria still be waiting for him?
Taylor is an epic love story whose continent spanning scope can only be matched by the fervor of its two leads.

Reviewed by Paula Tran for Readers' Favorite Taylor: The Journey Home by Harold J. Fischel describes a teenager and his transition into a young adult after a family financial crisis. Taylor, a junior in high school when the story first starts, lived a very extravagant lifestyle. He is the star of his school's football team, as well as a popular bachelor. He loves playing around with girls, moving on from one to the next faster than the change of weather, to the point where his mother is frustrated. However, things changed when Taylor found out that his family's business has crashed, and his world took a turn when his father committed suicide. I think this novel is very well paced and extremely well written. The first few chapters were used to introduce us to Taylor, describing his playboy, care free attitude when it comes to anything. He is seen as reckless, making out with his girlfriend Phyllis, while knowing things can potentially get out of hand. However, I found it easy to relate to him, and I'm sure others will as well. Most people have experienced reckless teenage years and can relate to Taylor's problems and thought processes. I think this way of introducing Taylor is a good thing, because we get to know the character a little better. The plot is also well developed, a mix of emotional and suspenseful elements. However, for a high school student, Taylor seems too perfect. Sure, he has had ups and downs during his life, but his achievements suggest that he can be a little of a Mary Sue.
