-Compulsion Reads


Albert Parker is the new kid in the neighborhood. He brings with him the emotional scars of early parental loss and all the aggressive attitude a dysfunctional and abusive step-father can create. His struggle to fit in, and the stories of the people around him as he tries, create a powerful, historically accurate tale about friendship, love and loss. 
Set in a working-class American neighborhood in the turbulent 1960s era, REICHOLD STREET deals with some tough issues: alcoholism, bullying, family dysfunction, criminal activity, suicide, murder and the horrors of wartime Vietnam. Masterfully written in the manner of J.D. Salinger (Catcher in the Rye), William Golding (Lord of the Flies) and Stephen King (The Body), the 2012 Readers Favorite Gold Medal Winner REICHOLD STREET, by R.L. Herron, takes you all the way from first introductions to the searing tragedy, yet remarkable redemption of war. 
The neighborhood where young boys routinely play baseball in the street comes to life in an intriguing coming-of-age story, and becomes a place where they discover the sometimes violent realities of life. It's a tale Kirkus Reviews called "Skillfully written and emotionally charged."
