Among the Jimson Weeds—Conor Kelman began searching for love and acceptance, that feeling of fitting in, at a very young age. He blamed his parents for uprooting him, dragging him from all the places he called home, from his friends, time and again.

If this first novel by Paul Keene is any indication of what's to come, I eagerly await his next book. I have known Paul since childhood, and while reading this engrossing story, it felt like walking down memory trails. Paul is a skillful story teller, and writes with authenticity and power, telling the challenges of being a boy who doesn't fit in, because of learning difficulties, family problems, and constant moving about. "Among the Jimson Weeds" is a good book.

A must read for those who have experienced ...more
