“I never thought that reading about someone else’s life could be so interesting and entertaining. This is a series that you won’t be able to put down until you finish it.

Absolutely Awesome

This story was kinda like Forest Gump but with a young genius. His godmother is Betty the Queen who was his mum’s best friend during the War. He causally meets lots of famous people. I usually like my books with some magical powers, but a good story is a magic all its own.”

Great (tongue in cheek) coming of age story series

“I am absolutely certain that I have NOT caught all the literary and historical references sprinkled throughout this series. Regardless, the storylines are great fun as our MC grows up with a great ability to take action in an alternate world much like ours. Besides, how can you not like a series with that cover page quote – “That’s the way it happened, give or take a lie or 2” 😉

Fred Berman masterfully presents this diary-style look at the fantastical life of 14-year-old Ricky Jackson. Listeners join him as he hitchhikes round trip between Ohio and California in 1958. En route, he stops armed robbers, wins a rodeo, finds gold, meets Elvis and John Wayne–all realistically rendered–while maintaining an endearingly modest demeanor. Mum Jackson’s wry personality, memorable English sayings, and humor make her Berman’s best creation. Ricky shares valuable lessons he learns; a love letter about his many favorite books; and believable inventions, for example, a handheld hair dryer and a rotating showerhead. Audio guarantees a relatable listening experience for all ages as this audiobook recounts unfamiliar historical facts, a loving family life–and best of all–discovering girls. S.G.B.
