Book Review: Of Dust and Tides by A.G. Russo

Chance encounters, voices from the past, or challenging choices can change the course of a life. In this short story collection, young people starting on their journey to full adulthood find themselves on unexpected paths.

THE NORMAL FILE – A young Army veteran struggles to find a new life, and gets help from a childhood friend with issues of her own.

OLLIE’S DAUGHTER – An 18-year-old girl is determined to know if she is the daughter of a rock god.

PORTRAIT OF JORI – The day a beleaguered art student learns he will graduate he’s offered an incredible opportunity.

SICK GRANDMA – English Comp ain’t what it used to be.

WALKING WILD – A sensitive, sheltered, but spirited girl’s first experience with the bar scene.

DOUBLE VISION – A legally blind young woman has a vision.

ESCAPE – A distraught son seeks to break free.

IMPURE EARTH – Hundreds of years after nuclear holocaust, society has been remade.

This one was a DNF for me. I read two of the short stories in this collection and they were just too high school for me. Perhaps I’m getting old.

On Amazon.

On Goodreads.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
