One of the Boys

One of the Boys was a difficult read. The story of a mentally ill drug addicted father kidnapping his two sons floats above verbal and physical abuse by using horrifying poetic language. Narrated by one of the sons you’ll swell up with emotion with this passage: Across most of my back red and purple welts overlay a dark pool of swirling colors, like something wicked had used my body to make a finger painting. This first short novel by Daniel Magariel bodes well for future work.
