What do a bozo in a dunk tank, the Jersey coast, and a rare, but deadly disease have in common? Do you think humor can both hurt and heal? Experience both sides of humor as you read about Chad’s summer at the boardwalk.
I think the story is very well-written, and a real page-turner. The author developed Chad and Malcolm well; I really felt like I knew who they were. The story explores the idea of humor as it affects others, as well as yourself. Good food for thought.
If you haven’t yet discovered David Lubar, I highy recommend you check him out. I’ve read his story collection, In the Land of the Lawn Weenies. The stories are GREAT, especially if you like the creepy, kind of Twilight-Zone stories. There’s another collection, Invasion of the Road Warriors, which is on my to-read list.
