The Slide by Kyle Beachy.
Okay, so at first we're thinking coming-of-age tale, and typical in some ways, drugs, loss, sex, fractured families, and on and on, but good, the Kyle Beachy can definitely write, and then we're thinking, nice, it's also a celebration of St. Louis and the mid-west, and we like that, its different, and again, the Beachy can you know, write, but then like 200 pages in, its something all together different, a story suddenly filled with twists and turns, chaos, violence, and goodness; a story we couldn't put down because we had to know what came next. And that's good stuff. And that's why we read. Nice work dude.
