2012 Readers' Favorite Gold Medal Winner
Imagine J.D. Salinger (Catcher in the Rye), William Golding (Lord of the Flies) and Stephen King (The Body) sitting down to write a new, coming-of-age story set in a working-class American neighborhood in the turbulent 1960's Vietnam era.
The Patton family arrives on Reichold Street and step-son Albert Parker brings with him the emotional scars of early parental loss and all the aggressive attitude an abusive stepfather can create. It's a fast-paced, powerful story about family dysfunction, friendship, love, loss and the remarkable redemption of war.
REICHOLD STREET was a 2012 Readers' Favorite Gold Medal Winner. Kirkus Reviews said: "...the characters are bold, the plot twists surprising, and the point - that we never fully know a person or his story... heartbreakingly clear... Skillfully written and emotionally charged."
"5 STARS! ... a master of the art of character development ..."
