Check It Out: As Good As Can Be

As Good As Can Be by William A Glass
Historical Fiction

A novel about the wayward son of an alcoholic army officer.  As his dysfunctional family moves from one military base to the next, Dave Knight develops a give-a-damn attitude and an ironic sense of humor.

In high school, he becomes the class clown and is accepted by other delinquents. He joins them in a series of escapades, some dangerous, others funny, and a few that would be worthy of jail time should the troublemakers be caught.

After barely graduating, Dave’s drafted into the army and sent to guard a nuclear weapons depot in Korea. There he runs afoul of his sergeant and must scramble to avoid dishonorable discharge.

As Good As Can Be is a cheeky, enjoyable read. I'll admit I was worried this would be a bit darker than it was. The opening line made me laugh, and after the first chapter I was excited to read the rest of the book. Not your typical historical fiction, but that's not a bad thing! Following Dave and his family is a ride you don't want to miss.
