In this funny, bittersweet memoir, bestselling author Linwood Barclay tells of his very personal coming-of-age. As a young teenager, Barclay's family abandoned their suburban city life to run a cottage resort and trailer park in the Kawartha Lakes region of Ontario. Girls, boats, fishing, racing cars down deserted country roads -- it seemed an idyllic existence. But there were darker, life-changing moments fast approaching, and before Barclay would leave this place he'd be a different person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, Funny, Wise I absolutely LOVED this book; certainly a series of coincidences has something to do with it...I grew up in the 50's-60's in much the same type of family situation as Linwood did, in a small tourist village although not in a trailer camp....and I currently live in the area he is describing in the book. But besides all that...this is simply a wonderful memoir of a time and place never to be seen again. It is in turns hilariously evocative and funny, and desperately sad. I have enjoyed several of Mr. Barclay's mystery novels, but I think this is his best yet. A must read!!
