Small Town Punk
John Sheppard
Small Town Punk is a coming of age novel that claims to not be a memoir, but it seems like there is a touch of autobiography to the novel. I related to the story of growing in a dysfunctional family in the 80's. There is a certain anger to being the victim of abuse, whether emotional or physical, that is always quelling up inside and looking for escape. Buzz, the main character, was beaten by his father and sees the world in black and white. The characters are true-to-life believable and interesting. It is a quick read and well worth taking the time - as long as you can handle some profanity...
