Review
An all American, well America won't claim him, idiot. Born and raised in Alabama, Forrest gets himself into loads of trouble. He and his girlfriend Jenny are the main characters of this story that ranges from him being drafted to him being shot into space. A wonderful book for more mature readers.  View at phoenixpubliclibrary.org

Review
This book is a lush, beautiful memoir about pre-Fidal Castro Cuba. This is about his life prior to being forced to go in the United States to be safe. From Driving in a car through waves to throwing stones at each other, their is beauty in this book that haunts your memory forever.  View at phoenixpubliclibrary.org

Review
First off, this isn't a very good book. The plot is interesting and the writing is fairly good, but the book itself isn't very good. The reason I'm giving it four stars? The pictures. This book is made amazing by the old pictures scattered throughout it that help tell the story. This book is worth a read just to see the pictures.  View at phoenixpubliclibrary.org
