With his debut novel, J. D. Benabides comes to you as an author of the familiar, the heartbreaking, and the gut wrenching- sometimes all at once.
He is from a small town in California, and applied much of that small town setting to his book. He studied creative writing at San Francisco State University, and is currently teaching English in Tokyo, while working on his next book in his spare time.

What a fresh voice! Unique in both style and narration, this poetically beautiful book is reminiscent of Alice Sebold's "The Lovely Bones", told with the same grace as "The Virgin Suicides". This quick and lovely novel will draw you in and keep you hungry for more. Definitely worth the read.
(I am eagerly awaiting the next work this author makes available, I'm sure you will be too)

I loved this book and could not put it down. If you are looking for a good story, this is it. The author has such a great way with words. The title is a little off-putting but the story moves along pretty quickly. I will look for other works by this author.
