I’ve read several of Rhamey’s books, and one thing I love about them is his genre-bending style. In “The Summer Boy” he gives us a murder mystery, a teen romance, and a coming-of-age story, all woven together with effortless skill. Rhamey has created a believable cast of characters--some heroic, some disturbed—whom readers come to really care about, plot twists rich with lethal pitch forks and black widows, and all of it supported by a back-drop of real-life Texas ranch experience—like how to prepare cactus for cow consumption during dry spells. The main character Jesse’s crush on Lola brought back my own teenage longings—minus the murder—without being sappy. A pleasant surprise was that Jesse’s evolution over the course of the novel emerged not only from his encounter with first love and ranch life, but also from his challenging relationship to the jealous and dangerous ranch foreman, Buddy. I read Rhamey’s novels quickly, shaving off sleep time in order to finish them. “The Summer Boy” was no exception. Highly recommended!
