The End of a Childhood

Just finished this book. It's written by a local Lake Mills man. Basically it's about how his mother and sister are driving him to college and how he remembers his childhood along the way. I enjoyed several chapters; in particular, the chapter where he wrestles for the regional championship for the L-Cats. The other chapter I liked was the one where he and his emotionally distant dad go to Boy Scout camp.

I think this is a good read for townies like me.

I'm a townie!!! Never thought that would happen!
It's extra interesting for me to read because I know some of the coaches he had etc.
I totally agree about not having enough time to read all the books I want to!!! Especially at the HS level. When I was at the elem. school, I could read lots of books in a weekend. Not here!
