Life wasn't so great when you didn't have much of a relationship with your parents or the ability to play street games while growing up in the fifties. You would rather be secluded in your lonely room, using your imagination to write stories and draw comic books than to be drowned in negativity by your mother or humiliated by your peers. All of this can change for Jimmy Yadenik when he meets Johnny, his soon to be mentor and member of the Vandals, a street gang, and he applies for membership. But the transition won't be easy.

My Lonely Room by John A. Vikara Black Rose Writing You Are Auto-Approved New Adult, Teens & YA Pub Date 26 Jan 2017 I am voluntarily reviewing a copy of My Lonely Room through the publisher and Netgalley: Jimmy is growing up in the fifties, a boy who is not popular amongst his peers and doesn't have much of a relationship with his parents. He would rather spend his time in his room working on his comics or writings. Jimmy can't understand why his parents let the landlord pick on them. Jimmy meets a girl named Sandra who he falls for, but when her parents find out about them they threaten him. Finally he meets Johnny, who gets him out of his room, and into the world. I give My Lonely Room five out of five stars. Happy Reading.
