A Boy of the Sixties
James David Hudson
How could he have possibly known that a promise made to his girlfriend would have such dramatic consequences? A story of a childhood altered forever by one night's turn of events.
Bullied, beaten, accused, betrayed and shunned. With the odds stacked against him, fourteen-year-old Jimmy faces a life without his family, but most importantly, without his girl. Falling into bitterness and despair, he vows to take revenge and retribution on those he sees responsible for his plight. However, unlikely friendships and alliances coupled with moments of tragedy take Jimmy on a path of enlightenment and redemption instead.
The trials of Jimmy are laid bare with disarming honesty. This story shows mistakes made and lessons learned, as a boy becomes a man, and with this maturity comes acceptance and understanding.
