Ok, I’m feeling a little like Oprah. I just watched her show where she read a book and talked to the author, and I just did that with the book I read. The Screwed Up Life of Charlie the Second. I finished it this afternoon. As soon as I did I emailed the author, Drew Ferguson. And told him what an incredible book he wrote.
Now I haven’t read a lot since I graduated college. If you listen to a few other shows you know we’re doing a podcast book club and its starting with this book. This is one of those books that really reached in and touched something in my soul. I so reminded me of a lot myself and brought back a lot of memories, good and bad. It mad me realize how you change over the years, and hopfully for the better.
I don’t want to go into too much detail about the book, I know a few people haven’t read it. But it’s about Charlie and him in his Senior year of High school and what happens. One minute you’re up and the next you’re down. It really is one of the most well written books I’ve read in a long time.
I strongly suggest you got to Drew’s site and get a copy. Or head to your local gay book store, like Out Write in Atlanta, or Amazon and get it now!
