Today BookZone welcomes A.K. McKay, participating author in the Orangeberry Summer Splash Book Tour featuring: 100 Authors, 106 books and 500 Blog Stops in 31 days! As part of this tour A.K. is promoting his Young Adult title, Tommy Tippett. Read on for more information about the book:
Enter a world of vignettes and stories about Australian life in the 60′s, as seen through the eyes of Tommy Lee Tippett, a boy whose life is filled with innocence, wonderment and hardship. Tommy’s family is dysfunctional, but in the nicest sense. Tommy’s Granddad is never far from his horseracing papers and never slow to retell an outrageous tale. Uncle Jack’s life revolves around riding in buses and regaling strangers with stories about bizarre bus routes.
Tommy’s twin sister, Annette is mentally handicapped and it befalls Tommy to look after her. His mother Norma is a severe woman who loves her children but is torn between her love for them and the love of a man. Tommy’s story inhabits the golden sands of Bondi Beach and the exclusive suburbs of Sydney, where Tommy finds himself in a stately mansion as well as the home of the American Consul. The tales of Tommy Tippet will touch you and give insight into a well woven, gorgeous tale that lies against the backdrop of Australian life in the 60′s, parenting, family and more.
