HIGH TIDE...'WHAT'S ROLLIN' IN'

DUE OUT NOVEMBER 2015

 

New Year's Day is usually the time of year when hope for a bright future abounds. However, the opposite is true for a rescue dog, and a high school senior hoping for a career in baseball. Life for them suddenly changes.

 

Tragedy, loss, and heartbreak strike the Comley family when Major Comley's copter is shot down in Afghanistan by the Taliban during a rescue mission.

 

Angel is beaten and thrown out to die by her owner's jealous boyfriend in a rural section of Virginia Beach.

 

These two struggle to survive from day to day...until their paths cross.

Who saves who?

 

Frigid temperatures and several inches of snow lambast Sandbridge Beach. The unusual weather become the catalyst that brings Adam and Angel together.

Was it really the weather?

 

 

This coming-of-age story is nothing short of a rollercoaster ride as Adam and Angel struggle to overcome life's obstacles, heartaches, and hold fast to their desire to succeed.

These six short stories are true. They are funny now...but not so much then. During my youthful, immature years I was known for trying to dance around my parents' rules. It seemed I was always caught, and then came 'payday'. My dad would say, "Son, if you dance, you'll pay the fiddler."
You will see in some of these stories how this old saying became reality in my life. Remember, all of these are true stories.
Maybe reading these will bring back fond memories for you...returning you to the days of your youth...and they really were 'the good old days'. I hope you enjoy my scribblings and they put a smile on your face. Thank you and keep smilin'....

 

AMAZON REVIEW

 

Thank you Lee Carey, for an enjoyable two evenings of reading!

Since I grew up during the same years, a lot of this book rang true for me. I remember my parents and their 'rules' too. I thought they were SO out of touch!! I remember the feeling of freedom when I was old enough to use the car and I certainly remember my first car (although it was in a bit better shape than his). I am admitting for the first time that I, too, tampered with a report card or two...I just didn't get caught.

Even though I was a girl, the changes in the world shown throughout "My 5 Memorable Haircuts" resonated with me. Of course, my first haircut was in one of those well established 'Beauty Salons' of the late 50's and yes, my last one was at the local 'Big Box Salon' with everything in between except the Army barber. Life has changed for us girls too!

If you enjoy a bit of nostalgia with a large dose of humor thrown in, you'll enjoy reading these stories.  Gayle B.

Keith DeLong and his polio-stricken best friend, Flea, overcame individual hurdles in the first novel, ‘If Bullfrogs Had Wings’. This sequel, set two years later, contains another heart-warming story of striving against the odds to get: ‘Out of the Rough’. Family, friendship, and determination can bring individuals out of darkness to grasp the rainbow of their dreams. Keith watches his dreams smashed by a series of events, out of his control. This 125k ‘cross-over’ novel shows the life of an eighteen-year-old dealing with harsh realities and making the tough choices they demand. Obstacles ranging from loss, fear, abandoning dreams, and a brush with death are much more than he ever imagined. Life deals the cards – Keith plays them. With mountain-grown determination, he overcomes and reaches his dream.

 

AMAZON REVIEW

 

Carey's done it again. I enjoyed "Bullfrogs" so much I wanted to see what happened to Keith and Flea in this book. This is a great yarn about persevering in the face of adversity - losing one's father, becoming semi-crippled from polio, being trapped underground in a mine cave-in, all the while following the two boys on their journey to adulthood and all the friends and famiy who accompanied them on the jaunt. Will I read a third book about these characters? Is a fish waterproof? Gene Byrge, author, MI

This YA/Crossover novel has been read by more 'baby boomers' than young people, and has become a hit. This story is set in WV in 1957, a time when family was family and friends were essential. You will quickly bond with Keith DeLong and his best friend, John 'Flea' Summers, two normal teens growing up in a rugged coal mining town.

For a summer job they decide, instead of working as gophers around the mine, to work outdoors in fresh air and sunshine. They apply for the caddy job at the Bluefield Country Club, without their parents' knowledge. This move will not set well with Keith's coal-mining father. Keith's best friend Flea is struck with a serious illness. Keith is also swamped by waves of decisions and increasing heartaches in the midst of his dreams. After warning his son about the uppity attitudes of the Bluefield 'rich' folks, against his better wishes, Keith's father allows him to caddy. "You'll learn about them folks...the hard way, son."

 

This story will pull you in and have you rooting for these two teens in their struggles and determination. Have a tear-wipe handy. Oh, and then there's the sequel "Out of the Rough".
Both novels are suitable for all ages, especially those of us who recall the late 50's and how times were.

Review by Larry Webb, Young Adult author:
Lee, I just finished "If Bullfrogs Had Wings." Loved it! I grew up in the 50s and remember well our feelings of misuse, abuse, etc. because we couldn't go to the county fairs, circuses, movies etc. because of the polio scourge before Jonas Salk perfected the polio vaccine. Our parents just plain wouldn't let us. Anyway, loved the book and all of its life lessons. Five minutes after finishing, I downloaded its sequel "Out of the Rough".

A beagle puppy is discarded like trash on the Eastern Shore. He lived in fear and hopelessness – until the day Scooter and Gabby pulled into the country diner where he hid out. Little Flash suddenly found himself relocated to Sandbridge Beach, becoming a member of their little family of three.

Their many humorous and heartwarming adventures will touch the reader. Gabby stars in a Disney movie, Scooter’s debut novel’s published and Flash accompanies him on the book tour, and special-needs children are treated to “beach camp”.

Brand New Amazon Reviews on 'Flash'

 

 

Lee, thank you so much for writing another great book. I found myself laughing out loud. It was so great !! Of course there were a few tears too. I would recommend this book to any pet lovers. It was a great sequel to Gabby. Hope you are planning on more. I will be waiting to read them. Kathy Budny

Five stars to Lee Carey's latest, FLASH...The Humble Hero. It's a heart-warming story from beginning to end. As the sequel to Gabby... All About Me, the story begins with Gabby taking top billing. As the tail evolves, Flash's personality and character develop as well. Gabby is well named because she's loquacious, out-going, and extroverted enough to be a movie star. Flash is quieter, more humble, and a hero in every sense of the word. Be prepared to feel anger, love, shed a tear or two, and be reminded of some of life's important lessons. Author, Larry Webb

Lee Carey hooks you from the very beginning with this tale about Flash. This was a book that I really couldn't put down until the end. A really wonderful summertime read.

I didn't know what to expect when I read this book as I wasn't familiar with the series. From the first page I was completely enchanted with Flash and Gabby. This is a delightful story and a joy to read. I love the way Scooter converses with the dogs and Lee Carey made me believe they really do this! He has a charming writing style and I laughed, cried and rooted for these amazing characters all the way. The beach setting adds to the happy, laid back, over all feel of the book. I am so glad to have read this and I can't wait to read the rest of the series. Congratulations Lee Carey, this is an absolute gem.
