"A fast-paced, heartwarming mystery and coming-of-age tale that will appeal to readers from baby boomers to teens. The likable hero struggles with adolescence even as he searches for his father's killer, and as his small town's neighborliness is tainted with prejudice and corruption." --Patricia Skalka, author of Death Rides the Ferry
"A gripping novel sure to entertain young readers and give their grandparents a trip down memory lane, Guhl's cleanly suspenseful story delivers hard lessons about greed, violence, racism, and the value of an independent spirit, all in family-friendly language laced with a history of the Fox Valley." --Abby Frucht, author of Polly's Ghost

The theme that really stands out for me, as a born and bred Wisconsin boy, is the thorough embedding of the story in a sense of place! The Fox River Valley of Wisconsin and the author’s mastery of it: in geography - the lakes and rivers - culture, history, family, the 1970s era, food (Tang!), fishing (the lure business!) and hunting/guns , the bike "Ike", paper mills, church, high school life and the Menasha rivalry, Green Bay Packers, social change brought by the Civil Rights Movement, etc, etc.., drive this book forward at a fast pace , what an interwoven package! I find much of my own boyhood life and era in Eleven Miles... I would assume that an element of this story is autobiographical, and, for instance, I'd be interested if a student like Opal was in the author’s high school? Regardless, I sincerely hope the sales of this excellent book go well.. fantastic job!
I especially like the “Cozy” aspect of it all. The activities are sprinkled with references to place people and things that we all can relate to, especially folks growing up in the 60’s and more so those from Wisconsin. The details about fishing are great and all from the perspective of a really great character.
