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. When Kelly is in 9th grade, his surfer dude dad shows up at school, takes him for a ride, confesses to a murder while high on cocaine, then disappears from his life for years. This stunning memoir is also a coming of age story, a father-son drama, a travel adventure, and a moving story of the author's self-discovery.
