Have you ever had an extraordinary day?
Max hadn’t. Until one winter day when he met a girl.
THE LIBERATION OF MAX MCTRUE takes place in a single day. The classic Boy Meets Girl story. Well, sort of: Boy meets homeschooled girl. Boy ditches school. Boy finds his future. And there's an ice cream truck. And archery. It's a bit like what would happen if FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF and THE ALCHEMIST had a kid, well...a kid who was a YA eBook novella. You get the idea.
Max took a day off and found his life.

One day can make a difference
Kim Culbertson's novel is current, original, and captures the pressure put on teens in high school, faced with deciding not only their college, but their entire future. Often it seems the whole experience of the teen years is a means to an end... grade points that average over a 4.0, high SAT scores, endless extracurricular activities. Where is the life there? Shouldn't high school also encompass what it means to enjoy the freedom of discovering who you are, who you love, and what you dream of becoming? Culbertson embraces individuality, and promotes the idea of taking the time to be curious, to explore the world you live in every day, and to embrace what you are passionate about. There should be more books like this for teens! Obviously, this author knows and values the voice of the young adult, and conveys that time in life when everything is possible if you are willing to take some chances.
