Ugly to Start With by John Michael Cummings

Jason Stevens is growing up in picturesque, historic Harpers Ferry, West Virginia in the 1970s. Back when the roads are smaller, the cars slower, the people more colourful, and Washington, D.C. is was across the mountains- a winding sixty-five miles away.

A series of short stories, brought together by the simple fact that their main character is the same boy. We read about how his family, and he himself, is changed my the passage of time.  Jason's life unfolds rapidly infront of your eyes, showing the ups and downs of his growing up. The perfect book for those who don't have much time to read, each chapter being a story on its own but also fitting together as a whole book. 
This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review. 
Action Reader's Action: Write a chapter, or short story, about your own growing up. Plan a time when you will share it with someone special.
