A Song for Julia (Thompson Sisters) by Charles Sheehan-Miles @CSheehanMiles


A Song for Julia

Everyone should have something to rebel against.

Crank Wilson left his South Boston home at sixteen to start a punk band and burn out his rage at the world. Six years later, he’s still at odds with his father, a Boston cop, and doesn’t ever speak to his mother. The only relationship that really matters is with his younger brother, but watching out for Sean can be a full-time job. The one thing Crank wants in life is to be left the hell alone to write his music and drive his band to success.

Julia Thompson left a secret behind in Beijing that exploded into scandal in Washington, DC, threatening her father’s career and dominating her family’s life. Now, in her senior year at Harvard, she’s haunted by a voice from her past and refuses to ever lose control of her emotions again, especially when it comes to a guy.

When Julia and Crank meet at an anti-war protest in Washington in the fall of 2002, the connection between them is so powerful it threatens to tear everything apart.

MY Review

5 big stars I really honestly and truly loved every aspect of this book. It was a a true story of love. The characters and how real they were just blows you away.

This was my first Charles Sheehan-Miles book and I bought all the others. Why have we never heard this name? If you are a fan of  On Dublin Street and the Avoiding Series, I KNOW you will love this. It is a much cleaner version. Makes you think how friendship with a teen Sean, Crank’s brother, who has  Aspberger’s syndrome. Crank is very involved and takes Sean’s care as his number one priority. There is a great cast, John the father who is a Boston cop and is a mild Archie Bunker. He makes you laugh and cry. John has a very loyal partner who is a like a fixture in the home.

They go on a journey to find their dreams and grow together. I won’t give a synopsis of the book, read the blurb and go get it. Very lovable people, life lessons, life choices, and love. This is the reason I say GO RUN and read it now.
