Inhaltsangabe: "The Lucky Boy is a mesmerizing coming of age story leading through illegal activities to raise money to find his true love." "A 21st Century writing style that will knock you on the back side of your head." Seth is a young boy who does not fit in anywhere. He is severely punished for the smallest of errors by his father a neurosurgeon. Seth's mother is a socialite who drowns her problems in pills and alcohol. The father decides he cannot deal with Seth anymore and sends him to live with his paternal Grandmother. Seth's Grandmother is more patient than his parents were. Seth becomes friends with a family down the street and falls in love with their daughter Amy. When grandmother dies of a stroke, he returned to his emotionally distant family. In high school, Seth discovers he has talents in swimming and selling drugs to his friends. Seth decides he needs $10000.00 to find Amy who has moved to California. He makes friends with Jon who makes money organizing street fights between homeless men and taking bets. The two become friends and through their illegal activities, Seth saves up the money to leave on his journey to find Amy. The disturbing results of his quest will haunt the reader. A hypnotic tale of disillusionment. What will it cost to become the CEO of a company? Gerardo writes in beats. The scenes feel voyeuristic. There is no other coming of age story like The Lucky Boy.

Umschlagtext: The novel has been called, "a dystopian suburban Great Expectations with sex drugs and MMA fight scenes."

Enter 1965 suburban Radnor, right on the Main Line. From the outside, you will think this is a normal colonial house with a happy family. The father is a well established neurosurgeon but the gorgeous mother is a mean spirited prescription drug user. Seth is a boy, he's on the swim team, he builds forts and plays with bugs but he has ADHD. No one recognizes what is wrong.

They send him packing to live with Grandmother and blame him for a fire in the back of the house. The parents will choose any reason to get rid of him. Seth finds a new way of living with his spiritual Grandmother. Seth even makes friends and falls in love. When Grandmother dies of a stroke everything is taken away from Seth and he has nothing to lose.

Seth will lie, steal, sell drugs, set up illegal fights just to run away on a cross-country adventure. Cross your fingers and enjoy the ride.
