A poignant and magical coming-of-age story Over 20,000-copies sold in hardback. 50,000-copy first printing; It’s the early 1980s and the suburban streets are filled with Bruce Springsteen-era teenagers searching for answers…In The Lost Legends of New Jersey, Rick Reiken show us how magic can arise within the ordinary lives of struggling families and everyday people. In this rich, resonant tale filled with joy as well as heartbreak. Reiken reminds us that when good literature comes along, it feels like true love itself, as if something legendary is occurring.
