The most important summer of my life began with a house-shaking thunder-boomer that woke me up on a Thursday night in 1958 near the end of my fifth-grade school year.

I walked out of my bedroom to the living room and saw Dad, in his brown pajamas, standing at the window looking out and up at the fury in the sky. On a nearby table, the transistor radio was playing softly so

WOW! What a wonderful short story. This book starts out in 1958 but ends up in 1994. This book has so much in the few pages that I am amazed at how well the author was able to created such a wonderful story. Please be aware that this review may contain spoilers.

This book starts out with Greg being a 5 year old child woke up by a strong thunderstorm. He walks in the living room of his home and sees his father holding a flashlight looking out into the night sky.

Greg has a father and a step-mother

It is so rare to find a book you can't put down. That's why I am so happy I discovered this writer. I couldn't stop reading this and my only disappointment with it was that it ended. It is the intriguing story of kids discovering things that people throw away. A young romance develops between two kids rummaging through trash cans and discovering things. The things they discover in those trash cans would haunt them forever and change their whole lives. Amazing book. Can't wait to read the next on ...more

I really enjoyed this book. As someone who lived through some of the historical times in this book I was taken back by the author's words and emotional story which follows the life of Greg from when he lost his mom in a tornado to the heart wrenching story of his hit and miss love with Kathy. The love of his life from fifth grade on this story is an emotional roller coaster ride. This compelling story is a must read that tells the tale of the victims of life and what we as people endure through ...more
