About the Author
Blake Nelson is the author of many acclaimed novels, including Recovery Road, Destroy All Cars, and Paranoid Park, which was made into a feature film by Gus van Sant. His classic 1994 debut novel Girl was called a "seminal coming-of-age text" by Vanity Fair. He lives in Oregon.
Reviews
"Nelson (Recovery Road) combines a hardboiled first-person narrative and a languid Southern California setting to establish a seductive surf noir atmosphere...[A] moody, fast-moving novel."--Publishers Weekly
"Nelson's spare style and nuanced portrayal of street kids is strongly reminiscent of the classic work of S.E. Hinton. The gritty beach setting, compelling cast of sensitively drawn secondary characters and spot-on dialogue elevate the story beyond that of a typical genre mystery...Readers can only hope that a new teenage private detective series is in the works."--Kirkus
"Readers will anxiously follow Robert's...journey of growth in this coming-of-age novel filled with exhilarating chases and heart pounding moments."--SLJ
