"This is a charming and emotional book. Well written and easy to get caught up in. A good story and enjoyable read." Georgi Abbott



"In a world of presumptuous people, irony is alive and well," concludes James Morrison, the narrator of this touching coming of age novel. A view Shannie Ortolan - James' longtime friend, sometimes lover, and full-time obsession - wouldn't argue. From their first encounter as teenagers until Shannie's death, experience the twists, turns and enthralling characters that populate Cemetery Street.
On the cusp of the new millennium, James fulfills a promise. Reenacting a childhood ritual, he places a mud pie upon a grave. This simple act triggers powerful memories.
Meet the people that shaped James' life. Shannie, who among other things, introduces him to the sport of dodging freight trains. Count, the cemetery caretaker's son, helps James navigate the minefields of adolescence until destiny is met in Desert Storm. Russell, an aging blind African-American, guards a horrifying secret behind a cloud of cigar smoke. Diane, Shannie's mother, a college professor dispels the notion of tweed jackets and elbow patches. Steve Lucas, a mortician's son, who despite bizarre obsessions, stands by James during his most challenging times.
Laugh, cry, and blush as James recounts events of a late twentieth century American life.

$1.99 You'll spend more on tissues. ;)

Welcome to KindleBoards, John, and congratulations on your book!

(If you've gotten this welcome before, it's just as a matter of housekeeping. We like to put a copy of the "welcome letter" in each book thread. It doesn't mean you've done anything wrong, it just helps us know that you know the rules.)

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Get your tissues out! A great novel written about the "coming of age" of the kids that lived on Cemetery Street in a small town, starting mostly in 1985 and onward. Their triumphs and tragedies weave a compelling story with unexpected twist and turns that will turn into a tearjerker as you get embedded into their lives. This is truly a "must read" you don't want to miss. I had a hard time putting it down and can't wait to read the next book by this author!

Cemetery Street Review from Smashwords!

The author of Cemetery Street has created an intriguing story about love, loss, and friendship.I enjoyed the way that I was able to see each of the younger characters grow and mature while handling the obstacles life threw at them.Anyone who reads this book should have some tissues nearby because I can almost guarantee that you'll tear up a few times.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!!, August 12, 2011
By
Charlene Perroni (Houston, Texas, US) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Cemetery Street (Kindle Edition)
I had never heard of John Zunski when I started reading this book. Now I am a fan forever. This is one of the best books of this genre I have ever read. Zunski gives us complete characters and a great plot along with plot twists than keep you guessing and the end--what a way to end a book. I will read more of his work because of this book.
