About the Book

This book follows a year in the life of a young boy from his ninth birthday until his tenth birthday. A mix of humor, drama, sadness, and enlightenment tie the story together.

The period runs from April 6, 1963, through April 6, 1964. The story is set in the small northeast Georgia town of Toccoa. The author uses actual events and experiences to help develop a fictional story that incorporates subtle, positive values when practical.

It is an intriguing book for growing ten-year-olds as well as for anyone who has ever turned ten years old.
