Lou Berney recommends
The Summer That Melted Everything (2016)
"The Summer That Melted Everything is a blast of hellfire, humor, and heartbreak thatís part Flannery OíConnor, part Stephen King, and wholly original."
"Joe Ide is a bad man: IQ is so hellaciously entertaining, deeply moving, and electrifyingly alive that you'll want to read it twice."
