I loved this book from start to finish!
The story of Darin Baer, who has yet to find his spot in life, and his father is far more than a father/son story. Darin is an actor who isn't doing so well in the acting profession. His father, Art, seems to be having some troubles living alone since his wife, Darin's mother, died. So, Darin comes home and starts a temp job as a substitute teacher. But they say you can't go home again, don't they?
I laughed, I cried, but mostly I lived the moments in the book as I fell right into the story. It didn't take me long to read the book because I had a difficult time putting it down.

First impressions suggest this book contains a simple tale, but strong and subtle depths soon begin to emerge - a gentle grip that pulls you in.
An interesting and entertaining range of characters develop, carefully crafted into their respective parts - neatly held together in a delicate balance.
The storyline intrigues, growing at a steady pace, drawing you forward. At times you attempt to peek around its corners - curious as to where it is heading.
Ultimately you come to realise it has been a simple tale, and that this has been its great strength - because it is one that has been told so well.

A delightful read from start to finish. The characters are well drawn, the dialogue is spot on and, despite there being a cast of thousands, I could easily keep up with who was who. The Baer Boys is always amusing and often laugh out loud funny but at the same time there is an underlying pathos. I don’t mean it’s schmaltzy or anything like that but just that it has heart. It would make a great film - or a musical even.
