Coming of age stories don’t have to be all teenage angst. They can be fun-filled adventures that become more serious with age. With humor, we follow a young man’s coming of age in the late 1950s. Starting in the summer before his freshman year, he goes through high school and beyond. He finds wealth as an inventor and fame in Hollywood as he searches for a girlfriend. Wealth and fame prove far easier than girls.
The Fifteenth Book has Rick exploring the moon and outer space.
Danger, fame and fortune, and adventure seem to be his lot in life. He connects with the love of his life. His actions have caused a change in history as we know it. He and Russia have their final confrontation. Then there is the moon and the outer reaches to explore.
This tongue-in-cheek saga is all true, give or take a lie or two.
