Careful by Randy Anderson Book Review and Tour (Promotional Book Tours)
For two decades Tyler Gibbons has been keeping a secret from his family. At the tender age of sixteen, Tyler embarks on a student exchange program. Sent to the Andean city of Ambato, Ecuador, he finds daily adventure as he tries to fit in at school, connect with his host family, and navigate through a world of beaches, volcanoes, and jungles.
But tucked deep inside this year are events so profound, so unexpected, they forever shape the man he will become. Now, 25 years later, his mother pulls these soaring tales from her son, exposing, for the first time, the source of a deep unhappiness. While these memories contain the wounds of an unresolved past, they also possess the power to heal his painful present. Thoughtfully crafted and boldly told, Tyler’s journey takes the reader on a wild South American adventure, while illuminating a mother’s unyielding power to heal her child.
Randy Anderson is a novelist and playwright. His first book was published in 2011. On Making Off recounted his adventures running The Beggars Group, a downtown theater company that produced over two dozen productions at the turn of the millennium.
He is also the author of several plays including; Kill the President, The Dwelling, and Yippie! Randy currently lives in Brooklyn where he writes, reasons, and reacts.
The book was a good read. In the beginning, Tyler is returning home after a long absence, visiting his mother in the hospital. Tyler is not sure what's wrong, but he showed up to support his family. Tyler's mother kept a postcard Tyler sent when he did an exchange program in Ecuador, but Tyler never told anyone what happened on the trip. This starts the premise of the story: What happened when Tyler was 16, on a trip to another country?
The first chapter was written excellent and it made me want to read more of the book.
