Like Forrest Gump? The Magic Strings Of Frankie Presto Is For You

The Magic Strings Of Frankie Presto was a real surprise. I had the book kicking around for a few weeks; it came with me to the pools, to work and to the bedroom but I never got around to opening the cover. Why? I’m not quite sure. The cover didn’t…

Yep, this review will be very short. Not because this book is bad, or because I have nothing to say; this book is just good and I can't elaborate too much further, but I will try. Jesse has such a precise, extremely detailed way of describing domestic situations, that you…
