Breakfast with Neruda
Everyone knows Michael Flynn was expelled, and community service is the only way he can stay out of jail. What no one knows-except Michael’s family-is that his mother is a hoarder who lives in unspeakable filth, and Michael has escaped. He’s living in a 1982 Ford LTD station wagon he calls the Blue Whale. When Shelly Miller, a girl also working off community service, catches him sleeping in the Whale one morning, Michael’s secret is out, but to someone who really gets it. She also gets his anguish that Michael’s mother refuses to tell him who his real father is. Michael seems doomed to stay on the edges of life, but not if Shelly has anything to say about it. She sets out not only to find the key to his father’s identity, but they key to Michael’s heart. If he can stop himself from shutting her out, Michael might have just one chance to really use his strong mind and his big heart. Trust is a big risk. Will he let Shelly in before it’s too late?
