David Haynes is on the #ReadingWithYourKids #Podcast to celebrate the re-release of his #YA #Novel Right By My Side. David tells Jedlie and co-host Cassandra Maisonet he is honored that this book has been named a Penquin Classic. In the novel we meet a different kind of Holden Caulfield in fifteen-year-old Marshall Field Finney, an ordinary, sullen teenager who discovers storytelling as a way to ease his adolescent anger and family tensions. Living with his parents in “Washington Park,” a housing development outside St. Louis, Missouri in the 1980s, his high-strung mother walks out on him and his father, a flawed yet strong man who manages the local landfill. Marshall’s two best friends, one Black and one white, are his only allies, as they navigate school and family life together.
