Book Marketing Global Network Gives 5-Stars to BEING BROTHERS by Mike DeLucia


Bold, Innovative, and exemplar. Author Mike DeLucia takes his readers back to the Bronx where he grew up, through the eyes and actions of his character Jackie Amato, an 11-year-old boy growing up in the Bronx in the 70s. For those of us who grew up in the 70's, this book will induce flash backs of a carefree time, where family, siblings, friends, teachers, coaches, and acquaintances become part of one's experience and soul, not a mere post while passing through Social Media Platform.

It is only fitting that Author Mike DeLucia uses his entrepreneur, actor, teacher, director, and award-winning writing prowess to create a story within a story, within a screen play. I say, bold, because Mike dares to expose his readers to dialog, action, and drama within a screenplay written by his fictional character Mark Marino. The layers of storytelling within 'Being Brothers' will test your intelligence, ability to focus, and fit the pieces of Jackie's life and a sports saga that will take you out to the ball field.

'Being Brothers' will draw you in and expand your understanding of past, present and future. This compelling coming-of-age drama shines a spotlight on male bonding and friendships that are cemented in youth. If you are young enough, not to have grown up in the seventies, this story should create a yearning to experience the bonds of a tight knit family, neighborhood community, school, religious, and/or athletic community that cultivates deep roots influencing adult decisions. 

Experience baseball, lessons of a great coach, team players, failures and rewards. I invite you to a reality, perhaps very different from yours. I have no doubt that you will want to share this book with young people who are coming of age. As a mother and grandmother, I can say with no hesitation that this book should be required reading for teens. Too many young people are emersed in a reality shaped by the lights, sounds, vibrations, and conversations emitting from electronics. They need to know that it is OK to seek out the warmth, even risk of personal encounters between family, peers, school, and community life.
