Ordinary Boy – Vagabondage Press

Ordinary Boy

ordinaryboyfinalthumbcover200x305p96dpirgbBy Stacey Longo

“Reading Stacey Longo’s Ordinary Boy is like opening presents on Christmas morning: the excitements of pathos, humor, terror, and surprise keep coming in this touching and relentlessly honest tale of growing up in small town America.” ~ David Daniel, author of Reunion and White Rabbit

 

My name is Curtis Price. Until my extraordinary death, I live an ordinary life in the poor side of town in Osprey Falls, Maine, with my mother and older sister. I am the boy that nobody sees, ignored in the shadows of the hallway. I am the kid that is picked last in gym. I am the student that is never called on in class to answer the question, and, after a while, I stop bothering to raise my hand.

It is not until my stepfather shoots me that I am finally—finally—noticed.

Before I meet my untimely end, let me start at the beginning.
