Diane Donovan of California Bookwatch had this to say about the novel:

“A philosophical story of growth, insight, and discovery . . . that moves beyond the usual focus on young adults to consider an adult’s evolutionary process . . . Readers looking for an introspective journey will relish The Soul City Salvation for its ever-changing evolutionary realizations which offer rich food for thought long after Jay’s story concludes.”

THE SUMMER OF CRUD Earns Four Stars from Four Moon Reviews

Four Moon Reviews gave Jonathan LaPoma’s coming-of-age novel THE SUMMER OF CRUD four stars:

“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.”
