Much more than simply a story of adolescence, Gunthridge writes in a voice reminiscent of J.D. Salinger. His accounts cross the generation line. If you have ever loved, you will be touched by this work. He crosses the act of love with the past, present and future bringing forth unexpected emotional involvement with his words, ideas and philosophies. He reminds readers why we love in the first place, why we consider the meaning of life, and later, why we examine the meaning of our own existence. For such powerfully touching words to come from such a young voice is extraordinary. This is not a simple memoir from a high school student, the mere fulfillment of an assignment, another reflection of teenage alienation and loss of innocence. This is a declaration of love for all time. His work is an opportunity to experience now what will later be considered a classic. Jacqueline Aguilera, MLA AuthorsDen.com Reviewer
When he was a senior in high school, Jack was asked to write an autobiography so he could examine his past to see how he came to where he is in his life today. He would then have an idea of where he wanted to go with his life once he graduated from high school. What he discovered was that he did not define his life. His life was defined by his relationship with Christine.
