Jonathan LaPoma’s award-winning literary fiction novel, DEVELOPING MINDS: AN AMERICAN GHOST STORY, is now available for purchase on Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble.com, and on the publisher, Laughing Fire Press’s, website.
DEVELOPING MINDS follows a group of recent college grads who struggle with feelings of alienation and their addictions as they try to survive a year of teaching at two dysfunctional Miami public schools. Kirkus Reviews called it an “Entertaining and authentic look at the troubled American education system,” and the San Francisco Book Review called it “Incredibly artistic . . . raw and endearing.” It can be seen as mix between TEACHER MAN by Frank McCourt and POST OFFICE by Charles Bukowski.
