The One-boy Insurgency
In the predawn darkness of August 26, 1929, in the back bedroom of a small house in Torrance, California, a twelve-year-old boy sat up in bed listening. There was a sound coming from outside, growing every louder. It was a huge, heavy rush, suggesting immensity, a great parting of air. It was coming from directly above the house. The boy swung his legs off his bed, raced down the stairs, slapped open the back door, and loped onto the grass. The yard was otherworldly, smothered in unnatural darkness, shivering with sound. The boy stood on the lawn beside his older brother, head thrown back, spellbound.
Have you read this book? Would you read on? I must admit, if I did not know what the book was about, this first paragraph of the first chapter would not tell me much. I am anxious to get started. It has been on my TBR list for over a year.
Until next time,
