Californium by R. Dean Johnson



This book is a fantastic coming of age novel during a time when rebellion is about finding yourself. This book captures teen angst in a storyline that uses punk rock and seeking popularity to follow the story of a young man named Reece. Reece wants nothing more than to be noticed especially after he returns from New York. He left a life he loved behind especially the one he looks up to Themistocles, his Uncle Ryan. We follow Reece as he learns that growing pains are real, some friends are fake, and you live and learn. But no matter what your family is still your family. Johnson is very talented detail oriented writer. He focuses on character development that makes you feel like you know the characters. His vivid scene settings make the story come alive. I can say the story was one I thought would be more action packed by the title and cover but it is perfect just the way I read it! Read More
