Book Review: Thompson Road By Scott Wyatt

Thompson Road
By Scott Wyatt
Genre: Historical Fiction
Book Description:
A sweeping, coming of age romance set in the Pacific Northwest on the brink of WWII. Rejected by classmate and talented swing dancer Sally Springs, high school quarterback Raleigh Starr remains desperate to win her heart. While walking home on Thompson Road, he catches sight of Mona Garrison dancing at her bedroom window.
He is mesmerized.
Determined to dazzle Sally, Raleigh convinces the shy sixteen year old to compete with him in a swing dance contest. After he is swept up in the war, Raleigh realizes too late what Mona has always known: that they are perfect for each other…but he is unaware of the terrible price she has paid for his attention. Thompson Road is a poignant, tender story that reminds us of the power of first love.
Book Review:

Set around the time of WWII, Thompson Road is about high school jock, Raleigh Starr, who is in love with Sally Springs. She rejected him, but he was set to win her heart with the help of Mona Garrison. Mona could dance, so Raleigh decided to enter them into a swing dance competition to hopefully capture Sally's attention. But as Mona and Raleigh get closer, they start developing feelings for one another, to the point of love.

Thompson Road is a story that had my emotions all over the place. It was amazing! Mona and Raleigh's story was beautiful. I cannot think of any other way to describe it. I really liked what time period the book was set in, it made the story even more interesting. Thompson Road has so much originality. It was also dark, which I enjoyed. Mr. Wyatt did an AWESOME job, thumbs up! Five stars!
