My Sunshine Away by M.O. Walsh

My Sunshine Away takes place in, Louisiana. The year is 1989 and  15 year old, Lindy  Simpson has  become a victim of a crime. There are four suspects and the  foundations of their upper class neighborhood have been shaken.

The book is narrated by a man who gives an account of what his life was like and what took place during his teen years. He not only suffered from regular teen angst but had to deal with the death of a sibling, an absentee father and a mother who was a wreck and simply could not get over the infidelity of her husband.  He also had a heart breaking innocent crush on, Lindy who he ultimately betrays.

This is a coming of age novel that spans a few years and deals with a variety of subjects. It is well written and the ending won't disappoint.

Grade: B+
