Playground Zero: A Novel by Sarah Relyea
Relyea pens a remarkable "coming of age" story in Playground Zero: A Novel. I haven't read anything from this author before, and I really enjoyed this story. The characters were raw and complex, and even though the main character was 12 (Alice), there were a lot of layers to both her and the story. This author is not just a writer but a great storyteller. An enjoyable journey. An enjoyable journey. Magnificent story, kept this reader turning the pages. The reader is taken back to the 60's (1960's), which is an interesting era in itself, and brings that era to life. The intensity and free flowing stories within 60's Berkley. Relyea is a very strong writer, and the story is told in an intriguing way that makes this a definite attention grabber. It's a great story to follow and try to figure out what will happen next. This author's characters develop and interacts well with the other characters. I look forward to reading many more stories by this author. This book is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews.
