Reviews

Elani Roman rated it it was amazingThe author has done it again. If you haven't read his first book, what are you waiting for! I love the down to earth conversational style of writing this author brings. In today's world of stuffy literary rules, it's nice sometimes just to pick up a book and it flows like a conversation with a friend at your kitchen table. I laughed about the Canada part in the book becasue Canada was always a place top on my list to visit. You have to check out why the author doesn't like it. Loved the truck driver prayer. Never seen that before. The pictures again just add to the authenticity of the voice and the author's literary style of sharing. This is another must read! Leslie Ray rated it it was amazingMy first thought upon reading T.J.Wray's second book is that he should change his middle name to "Resilience". He is someone who having been knocked down so many times, just gets back up and moves forward with the best attitude and outlook on life. This book is a continuation of the story of his life in the 90's based upon his previous book "Our Teenage Years: Growing Up in a Small Town in the 80's". However, this book could stand alone as T.J. fills in the gaps nicely.
His first bout with disaster comes in the form of an on-the-job injury that was described so well, I think I felt the physical pain myself. With an injury of this type, most people would have given up but he picked himself up and became a truck driver. The remainder of the book mostly chronicles his adventures in the world of truck driving which I found absolutely fascinating. The backstory behind becoming a truck driver and what it entails out on the road has given me a new respect and admiration for truck drivers everywhere.
Again, the life lessons from T.J. were interspersed throughout which provided the same reminders of what is important in life and how much of life is really what we make it, as he did in his first book.
T.J. is not just someone who makes lemonade when given lemons, but makes lemonade, lemon chiffon pie, lemon bars, etc. His mantra, "never, ever give up" is repeated several times and his story is a testament to to that mantra.
I look forward to more work from T.J. to provide me with reminders of what's important and to hear about his almost daily adventures. Allen Madding rated it it was amazingEnjoyable Read

T.J. writes in an enjoyable conversational manner that makes the reader feel like they are sitting across a cup of coffee listening to a storyteller. Good story and enjoyable read.
