Beverly Olevin about this book: Fiction is easy, the truth is hard. At least that's what I thought when I started writing "A Friend of the Family," a story from my childhood that had been burning in my brain, looking for a way out. But once the words hit the page, that frightening dramatic adventure that possessed my young family came pouring out. The moments of tenderness and terror, the details of conversation, they were all alive and begging to be retold, relived. Everyone's young years shape them, and each of our stories tell truths that inform the rest of our lives. My story is a universal one, and my hope is that everybody will find a piece of their childhood in this book. It's a story everyone can relate to: if you're a child, a parent, a sibling. Growing up in a small town in another time. A "true-life novella," where everything is real, but things aren't always what they seem.
