2016 The Great Midwest Book Festival
MAN ON THE FENCE
by John R. Day, Jr.
I REALLY enjoyed it!!! The best compliment I can give you is I was trying to make the book last for the week I was in California. There were times I had to FORCE myself to put it down so I could make it last. I just had to read what was going to happen to Tate and the gang next!! Keep up the good work; can't wait for your next book!!

I really enjoyed “Man on the Fence.” It is a very well written novel, reflecting a distinct tone and unique storytelling approach. I have to say I was surprised to learn this is Day’s first novel. The characters are real and relatable, full of personality, and well developed. By the end of the book, readers will feel like they grew up alongside the entire crew and that they know each character personally. The quick-witted exchanges between the characters are unforgettable– sometimes lacking tact, often crass, and always hilarious – loved the delivery and humor. And, as entertaining as the story was, I also found it to be informative, current, and relevant in today’s world, full of real-life experiences that will connect with a large audience.
Overall, I highly recommend “Man on the Fence” by John R. Day, Jr. for an entertaining enjoyable read. I’m looking forward to the sequel!
