I have to be honest and say that when I started reading Bridgetown High I feared it may be too much a Young Adult read for me but I was wrong. Yes, it’s a great young adult book, but it’s a book that anyone will take something from. The author did a great job of building believable characters and getting me engaged in their lives very quickly. His use of dialog in this book is excellent, and it really adds to the atmosphere of the story. I wondered if some of the emotional reactions of the characters might have been exaggerated too much until I remembered what it was like to be a teenager myself, that was when I remembered that every crush was love, every setback was a disaster, and every slight was tantamount to treason.

All in all, Bridgetown High for me was a very very enjoyable read and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

Loved the book! Couldn't put it down. Stayed up until 3 am. I am familiar with the places Mr. West wrote about which made it even better! Very well written. I can't wait for his next book! Soon I hope!

HASH(0xa1d1fbe8) out of 5 stars A Must Read for YA! 6 Nov. 2015
By AR Kerr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This one starts out with a bang. The main character of our story Mark, loses his family in a fatal car accident. He goes to live with his grandmother and has to start over at a new school. The beginning is tragic and the story kept its momentum all the way to the end. It’s a story full of love, anger, revenge, drugs, death and more. And it all happens in high school.
The author does a great job of weaving a tail of what life in the 1960’s was like. My only downfall, and I put this on myself, is that the author really took to heart how the dialogue was written in this story. They did a good job of showcasing how people speak when English is not their native language. And I found myself having to get out of correction mode and just read the story.
This story did have me hooked from beginning to end. I don’t want to give anything away, but I can say that love, drama, action, suspense, and even mystery played a part and I loved every word.

HASH(0xa1d23bc4) out of 5 stars The surprise edge-of-your-seat ending doesn't go away. 26 Oct. 2015
By David Steiger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This soaring debut weaves a foggy web around the San Francisco Bay Carquinez Bridge . . . a fog readers soon dread as emotions escalate at Bridgetown High. Distinctions of class, race, geography, and the 1960s generation of draft dodgers unfold in relationships that curve, bend, and crash around needs for revenge. The surprising edge-of-your-seat ending doesn’t go away.

HASH(0xa1d23f48) out of 5 stars Well-drawn characters and exciting 3 Jun. 2016
By K. L. Byles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I enjoyed getting to know the characters in this book. We meet seventeen year-old Mark Wilkerson attending the funeral of his parents and little sister and learn they were killed in a car accident on Christmas eve that he and his other younger sister survived. The story follows him as he deals with this immense tragedy by trying to find out exactly what happened and who was responsible. There is a message about forgiveness and healing in this book.

This is a good novel in the young adult genre and the author has a great understanding of the teenage years with all their complicated emotions involving friendships, love interests, and learning where one belongs in the swirling sea of on again-off again romances. I found the minute details of who was going to the Junior Prom with whom somewhat tiring, but I understand the method behind the madness. I also questioned whether seniors would go the Junior Prom at all, but traditions may be different on the west coast where the story takes place and the east coast where I attended high school over a quarter century ago.

I liked the emphasis on forgiveness from a Christian standpoint. I enjoyed the parental wisdom of Mark’s grandmother, who courageously takes over the care of Mark and his sister while dealing with the death of her son, daughter-in-law, and grandchild. She often quotes her mother and one of the best is “’what we see today as a tragedy, we may look back at tomorrow as a blessing’”. Of course Mark balks at this advice, but the reader hopes he will one day accept what has happened and begin to enjoy life again. He does, and the reader gets to go along for the ride.

I gave this novel four stars because I felt the ending, which I will not reveal, left the reader asking too many questions. The book is enjoyable and exciting but I felt the author didn’t take enough time to tighten all the threads. That said, this book is worth the read and stays true to the genre with no profanity or sexual content, though some of the characters use alcohol and drugs. There is some violence, but no more than is seen in any television program. I highly recommend it for adults and young people alike.
