Review of the Goatman by Jeff Fuell

 The Goatman by Jeff Fuell

This is about 3 friends Dan, Bluesman, Amy.  Teens who live in Corpus Christi, TX.
This story is told by Dan 30 years after the fact.  As no one would have believed him back then.  Going back to 1983 and being 13 with his first crush, hair cut short and a mongoose to get around town. Amy wears braces and Dan is afraid of getting is lips caught in her braces as that is what the rumors say!  So he is afraid of getting his first kiss from Amy.  Bluesman got his name from singing the blues at school during school!  The 3+ a dog plan a day were they ride out to Goatmans to just hang out in the middle of summer.  What they find is more than any 13 yr old should ever have to see.  Not giving away this exciting part!

This was such a surprise for me, as it is not my regular genre.  This book took me back to my teen yrs (early 80's),  it was such a great innocent time.  Except The guys I knew had long hair and our mode of transportation was Skateboards.  Reading this book reminded me of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer &  Stand By Me.  What a great story and well developed characters.  I laughed at the caned soda incident and many other parts.  I highly recommend this book to teens and adults.  I look forward to reading more from this fantastic author!
