THE SOUL CITY SALVATION gets 5-Star Netgalley Review

Jonathan LaPoma’s transgressive novel THE SOUL CITY SALVATION received another five-star Netgalley review:

“Wow, I loved this book way more than I anticipated. I knew I would enjoy it because I love a book that gives an honest depiction of mental health and the struggles that come along with it, but LaPoma knocked this one out of the park.

The main character’s struggle with his mental health was written with such passion and felt so heartfelt that it almost felt at times that I was just having a conversation with a friend about our struggles. It was a deeply honest and compassion depiction of OCD and mental health struggles, and is one I’ll definitely be recommending to everyone.”
