I am so excited to tell all of you about Steven Manchester's newest book! I am not posting as part of any blog tour or because I have received a complimentary copy of this book, but just simply because I love his books. I haven't had a chance to read this one yet but from the sounds of it, there is going to be a lot of nostalgic feelings and it will be a perfect book to read over the Christmas season. So a bit about the book . . .
Synopsis: "It’s the winter of 1984. Twelve-year old Herbie and his two brothers—Wally and Cockroach—are enjoying the mayhem of winter break when a late Nor’easter blows through New England, trapping their quirky family in the house. The power goes out and playing Space Invaders to AC DC’s Back in Black album is suddenly silenced—forcing them to use their twisted imaginations in beating back the boredom. At a time when the brothers must overcome one fear after the next, they learn that courage is the one character trait that guarantees all others.
This hysterical coming-of-age tale is jam-packed with enough nostalgia to satisfy anyone who grew up in the ‘80s or at least had the good fortune to travel through them."
