Blurb

As the summer before high school draws rapidly to a close, Chuck is filled with trepidation and self doubt, the weight of a million unanswered impossible questions lingering in his mind, fogging his vision. Juggling the daily expectations of any young man; go to school, go on dates, have sex, don’t get anyone pregnant, Chuck turns to others around him for answers yet his insatiable thirst for more cannot be quenched. He must decide whether to take a leap of faith and discover what his life truly means or remain stagnant and lose all hope of ever understanding anything more.

Introduction

August 1982

The summer before high school was rapidly drawing to a close.  I was filled with trepidation, angst, and self-doubt.  I had millions of questions and no answers. I wanted to know how and when I would become a man.  I wanted to know what it was, exactly, that defines a man.  Is it simply the sum total of all of the physical changes, the loss of virginity or the ability to be self-sufficient? I pondered questions like these endlessly sometimes to the point of shouting them out loud into an empty sky, but no one answered. Instinctively I knew that time would move forward regardless of whether I found the answers, and with no concern whatsoever about the fact that I felt utterly unprepared.

Madison O'Neal: Although the book may be good the grammar is horrid and it's hard to concentrate on the story when having to correct the mistakes of the author I suggest the author go back and correct things to improve the enjoyment of the book overall and the app should proof read things before they are publish...

brettylee: The narrative is slick yet punchy. Life, Family and Friends I believe is the core message so it’s easy to relate to. It’s surprisingly action packed. The author does a good job at keeping you guessing. Just when you think all is right, whack, the unexpected happens. The dialogue is energetic and ...

JulieJeanette: I'm only on chapter nine, but so far I am loving this story!. I am on pins and needles hoping that they find good men in their lives by the end. I am American and so the British tone and lingo ('knickers,' 'sod it' ) of the book is very appealing. I had to find out how much '12 stone' was by goog...
