A Good Day to Live
Twelve-year-old best friends, Danny, Will and Trout, know how to squeeze every drop of adventure out of the Lost Bay. Whether it’s fishing for alligator gars, hunting fictitious snipe, or finding Spanish treasure in Pirate’s Canyon, their Tom Sawyer-esque tale is a journey back to the days when kids roamed free and somehow still survived.
The boy’s idyllic world and friendships are pushed to the limit by forces they never figure out: pre-teen girls, rich country-club brats and killer hurricanes. Ultimately, they (and we) learn whether or not true friendship can be discovered on the Lost Bay.
A Good Day to Live mixes homespun humor with an honest bead of sweat into guaranteed smiles, tears and simple reminders of right over wrong.

Join Crevalle and his goofy, self-serving fellow journalists as they fight to survive a hairpin turn around every corner. Read it chapter by chapter, webisode by webisode, here on Fred’s Head.
