Book Description


A coming of age novel about high school, hard choices, and hope against all odds.

Sample Chapter

This story is loosely based upon my own senior year of high school which took place during the 1969-70 school year. While I am many ages removed from those days of my life, I still treasure the friends and great moments of that closed period of my existence.

What you are about to read contains many factual moments of my life. The reverse of this is that I have also used some creative writing skills to allow the direction of this novel to read as to how I would have actually liked my life as a 12th grader to really have taken place.

So, if your memory or research skills show that a certain athletic conference does not exist, a result of a High School Band District Festival rating is different than what history shows, then that is when you will find the imagination of Mike Beardslee’s running rampant.

The format for this novel will written in the style of a person making daily entries into a journal or log showing what happened on such and such date of the year. Volume I will start with the latter part of August 1969 and run through the end of September 1969.
