“I don’t recommend this book for the faint of heart. This book is raw and written bluntly. Nothing in this book has its edges sanded down or rounded off. The topics of mental health, addiction, abuse and physical pain are not made over into something less terrible than they are . . . If you are into blunt material that doesn’t always receive the storybook happy ending then this book is probably for you.”
Jonathan LaPoma’s newest coming-of-age novel, HAMMOND, is the #1 Hot New Release in Sports Fiction and the #8 Hot New Release in Coming of Age Fiction on Amazon Australia.
It’s also the #2 bestseller in Sports Fiction on Amazon UK and Australia, and the #3 bestseller in Sports Fiction on Amazon Canada.
“The author did a great job with characterization and voice. The drama and angst was very well done as well. I prayed for them to win the basketball championship so they could have something good happen in their lives. Did they win? Did they lose? You’ll have to read the book to find out.
I RECOMMEND the book to read.”
THE KIDNAPPED follows a Mexican drug cartel boss who kidnaps a washed-up Hollywood director, and the two are driven to insanity while shooting a documentary about the boss’s once-powerful cartel–a project meant to help both men reclaim lost glory.
