I recently completed a baseball novel, entitled "Let Me Wear Your Coat." The following are a synopsis and a link for more information. Feel free to email me at email@example.com with questions. Thank you.
"The academic curriculum is college prep and the facilities the envy of nearly every school in the state, yet New Jersey teenager Neil Bricker can’t imagine a worse place to continue his education when he enrolls for his freshman year at East Hill Regional High School in September, 1979.
Shy, self-conscious and unable to connect with his new, wealthy classmates, Neil expresses himself by playing drums to recordings from his favorite rock music group, the Who, and measures his self-worth through his participation in sports.
Adding to Neil’s adolescent angst are a popular jock classmate, who becomes a thorn in his side, and a complex relationship with his adopted African-American brother. Neil is envious of the pair, until a tragic event reveals he isn’t the only one of the three who’s uncomfortable in his own skin.
Let Me Wear Your Coat offers a poignant, painful – and sometimes humorous – take on an era where concert t-shirts, cut-off jeans and feathered hair were in style, and will strike a chord with anyone who grew up in the '70s and '80s."
