The Way Home by George Pelecanos
My newest favourite author! This story, of a family with a son going off the rails into jail time and then his journey back, is brilliant. It is fast paced and really engages the reader. The relationships, the jail time, the family dynamics and the plot are all very enchanting to me.
Definitely keep it and reap any further books I come across. Pelecanos is a talented writer that I can not wait to read more of.
