A WONDERFUL STORY OF GROWING UP, FINDING LOVE, AND PLAYING FOOTBALL IN 1972.
SET FOR RELEASE IN JULY 2015
"Candle" is a 15-year-old boy growing up during the turbulent 1970's when Vietnam changed forever what it meant to be an American. Bullied, gawky, and shy; this extraordinary protagonist sets out to consciously create the man he wants to be but, in reality, finds himself through the inevitable violence of teenage life, standing up to his peers on the red-hot topics of date rape and racism, and the incredible sacrifice required to achieve perfection. In this brilliant novel, Bruce Bennett gives us a deeply personal picture of a young man who will remind many of Holden Caulfield. You will remember "Candle" long after you finish the final page.
