This is a beautifully written, evocative coming of age story. It brought back vividly picturesque memories of Atlantic City.
Also there's a recent Goodreads comment by "Steven":
A wonderfully evocative tale of Atlantic City before the casinos, young love, growing up and coming to terms with one's life. Rich with the smell of the ocean and the colorful characters who populate the Boardwalk. Highly recommended.
And to evoke even more, we're working on a combined presentation with a photographer who has taken amazing pictures of the Atlantic City boardwalk. More on that soon.
