Sid Sanford always follows a path, just not his own. From backyard Wiffle ball games to New York City skyscrapers, Sid finds triumph and pain in equal measure during his uncertain, and at times violent, thrust into manhood. A colorful, loyal family, a plethora of eccentric friends, and a few star-crossed soulmates highlight his journey, but it’s ultimately up to Sid whether his destiny fulfills his potential or drowns in the bottom of a bottle.
What an interesting concept for the backdrop of the book. You don't really know exactly what kind of novel it will be from the synopsis, but I think that was great because you get way more than you planned on.
The plot was fast paced and made it extremely hard to take a break from reading.
For a subject that does not scream entertainment, I think that Daniel Ford has made this story very fun and entertaining while deep and thought-provoking!
