Kelly Daniels reading/signing Cloudbreak, California: A Memoir

Cloudbreak, California by Kelly Daniels is about growing up on the road with hippie parents, and a dramatic incident that changed the author's life forever. When Kelly was in 9th grade, his surfer dude dad showed up at school, took him for a ride, confessed to a murder while high on cocaine, then disappeared from his life for years. It is also a coming of age story, a father-son drama, a travel adventure, and a stunning account of the author's personal discovery and ultimate survival.
