My publicist (JKSCommunications) found this on the YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) list serve. Richie’s Picks is my first review and it’s a good one. Here’s his tag line:
“OPEN WOUNDS is a gem of a tale that is filled with guy relationships, flavored with a lost era of New York City, and features the intricacies and athleticism of a sport that is rarely part of young adult literature.”
Beside being from Long Island (though he doesn’t live here any more) and growing up not to far from where I did, he fenced in High School and knows something about the sport. So It’s pretty cool to get the thumbs up from someone who knows a parry four from a parry six.
Thanks for the kind words about my book, Richie.
