One Year On Meade Street

Dieses Buch kann in Apple Books auf deinem Mac oder iOS-Gerät geladen und gelesen werden.
13 year-old Jimmy McGuire just wants to see things burn. Stick matches in the old neighborhood theater. Plastic soldiers in the basement. The riled up anthill in the vacant lot across the street. He wants to resurrect a dying snake. Look at the stars at night and imagine undressed Martian Girls, and make a pipe bomb rocket that will reach the stratosphere (or accidentally kill someone). He wants to win the local Soapbox Derby race, but he has no wheels for his racer, so he wants to ?borrow? them from a neighbor?s wagon. Just until he wins the race.
He?s a good kid.
Skip Morley just wants to keep his next-door neighbor and best friend out of trouble, but Jimmy?s tongue is golden. It?s a losing battle time and again.
Midway through that fateful year Skip meets Carol Hudson, the prettiest girl in town. Jimmy meets Sara Bernstein, ?Gins?, a wannabe Beatnik from Manhattan. All the bets change. But before they meet their first loves, Jimmy and Skip will meet ?The Skulls?, the most vicious gang around, in a series of running battles that could spell death for someone.
Open the doors to One Year On Meade Street, a remarkably different coming of age romantic, comedic journey with an unexpected and emotional ending.
