***** 5-Star Review *****
I actually hate reading books! However, this delightful book, Godspell BHHS: The Amazing 70’s At Beverly Hills High School, from author, Michael An’gileo really gripped my attention. I was completely engaged from the start. This is an extremely well written story based in the glorious 1970’s In Los Angeles that takes us through An’gileo’s navigation through youth at Beverly Hills High School. It is truly a must read!
For those of us who love to reminisce about the magical time of the 1970’s in Los Angeles, this really strikes a chord. From platform shoes to feathered hair to the music and pop culture of the time - it is all there! The story harkens back to a simpler, more innocent time that really resonates with the reader. The author successfully achieves an enjoyable ride that straddles between coming of age, spirituality and the show biz, rock n’ roll and pop culture of the amazing 70’s.
An’gileo is careful not to overindulge in celebrity, typical high school cliches or religion, but effectively weaves elements of each into this journey. As a good book should, it allows the reader to escape to this very special time in all of our lives (and in Los Angeles) and feel as if we are there, while at the same time enabling us to interject our own story through the new and sometimes awkward experience of high school.
I am so glad that I read this book! It is a wonderfully honest, riveting story!
