Summer Up! by Tom Leihbacher

 The last day of school had finally arrived and summer break was on. With it came the promise of two and a half months of sun-drenched, fun-filled freedom.There were summer camps, summer trips, summer sports, summer foods, and summer nights to look forward to--to say nothing of summer afternoons hanging out at the town pool or the teenage art of sleeping in.But not every day was all fun and games for Charlie Riverton and his friends. During that memorable summer of '75, they faced a protracted battle for turf rights in their own backyards.It wasn't easy, and they took their lumps along the way. But they stuck together and stood up for themselves.With helpful guidance from a heavenly friend, their shoulders grew a little broader and an unforgettable new chapter was written into Briarcliff Manor folklore.Come join Charlie, Sky, and the whole cast from A Gift Most Rare on a summer-long, fun-filled, coming of age adventure.

Tom Leihbacher has lived in Briarcliff Manor, New York for most of his life. After graduating from Briarcliff High School and then the University of Florida, he returned home and began a career in the media and advertising sales business. He and his family live in the Tree Streets and enjoy a rich life filled with church and community involvements and great friendships. He listens to Dr. Cook’s Walk with the King broadcast each morning before boarding a Manhattan-bound commuter train at Scarborough Station; passes through Law Park and the Pine Forest frequently; enjoys membership at Sleepy Hollow Country Club; stops for sunsets over the Hudson River and once in a while can be found skating at one of the frozen ponds in town.

After 35+ years in the corporate world, "A Gift Most Rare" is his first novel. A summer sequel will be ready soon.

My Thoughts...
This is part of a series, but I read it alone and I was not lost it reads just like a stand-alone.
This was a good summer read. I think you will enjoy it.
