Karl Strong is lonely. Not quite alone, which is, perhaps, worse.
His best friend moved away, his mother died, and his father has crawled into a hole and pulled it in after him.
He is a talented athlete, but after high school, he lets himself go and dies of a heart attack. Luckily, this is Middle Falls, where death is rarely the end of the story.
Karl will have every chance to find what he needs.
The Tumultuous Lives of Karl Strong is the eighteenth book in The Middle Falls Time Travel series. Like all books in the series, it can be enjoyed as a standalone or in order.
