What are Rakuten Super Points™?
|It was our home away from home. It was a gathering point, a place to go when there was nowhere else to go. If you wanted to find a friend, the first place to look was The Shack. What is normal ? And how does the past affect the present? In his early teen years, Tommy Carters family falls apart. He finds something with his friends that he cant find with his family; he discovers that peace of mind is found at the bottom of a bottle, even if only temporarily. Everyone drinks at the age of fourteen, right?Its the late 1960s, and the world appears to be coming apart at the seams. Politicians continue to be assassinated, and the United States becomes embroiled in yet another war. The lives of four boys in a small Midwestern town mimic the turbulent times as their worlds crumble around them. Tommy and his friends (Jake, Mitch, and Ralphie) find that to survive, they must rely on each other-and alcohol. The Shack is a first-person account of families destroyed and youth interrupted-of troubled times when a family history of alcoholism can affect lives in ways that are understood only many years later. Its a story of dysfunction, friendship, addiction, redemption, and eventual forgiveness. *Author: Mulholland, Thomas *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 128 *Publication Date: 2005/07/04 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.00 x 6.02 x 0.36 inches|
