In Alligator Candy, David Kushner revisits his brother Jon's disappearance in October of 1973. His memory of the events are those of a 4-year-old struggling to make sense of what was going on around him. The way he recalls the event and the days and months after differ from what his family remembers. In this striking memoir, Kushner realizes he must revisit the events of the past through a different lens – that of a reporter – to find out what really happened on that fat
Who did? Where did he go? Is he dead? What are the answers to these questions? Do you want to know? Are you just looking for something to read? Whatever the answer is, why not give one of these mysterious mysteries for all ages a shot?
I look forward to each summer like I'm a kid waiting for school to be out. Not because I actually get a kids-length summer vacation, but because many authors release new books in some of my favorite series. These series are at the top of the list because their lead characters have become my imaginary friends. I have quite a few imaginary friends and, like my real friends, they are diverse, complex, intuitive, flawed, brave, intelligent and funny. Each summer affords me the opportunity to visit them again and see where their next adventures will take them.
