Always in the Middle Likes 'Finding the Worm' by Mark Goldblatt

Mark Goldblatt’s first book, TWERP, introduced us to 12-year-old Julian Twerski. He’s a smart kid with many thoughts about life and growing up. This sequel set in 1969-70, has Julian at age 13 returning to his journal writing. The story will have you laughing, crying, and thinking. It’s a funny book wrapped up in a serious one.

If you missed out on TWERP, you’ll be familiar with Julian’s gang of friends in no time. FINDING THE WORM is a separate story that stands well on its own. If you take the journey with Julian, he’ll seem like an old friend by the last page. I call that excellent writing. It also shows a male writer can push the emotional buttons instead of avoiding them. Everybody deserves to have someone in their life like Julian. He’s loyal and his story would be perfect for anyone at that awkward almost a teenager stage.
