Alpharetta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/12/2018 -- David Bernstein of Buford, GA is proud to announce the release of his first novel, The King of Pawleys. As a lifelong beach bum and the father of three, he combines his nostalgic childhood memories with his love for the little-known Pawleys Island, SC to bring to life a gripping tale of mystery, adventure, and friendship.
The King of Pawleys is the coming-of-age story of ten-year-old Peter, who witnesses a brutal fight that shatters his idyllic summer vacation. Peter and his friends must confront the truths hidden in this small coastal town in a quest to bring the culprit to justice.
"It's a fast-paced story that's perfect for boys, girls, and parents alike," says David. "Even if you've never been to—or even heard of—Pawleys Island, the characters are relatable, the mystery will keep you guessing, and the ending will forever change the way you think about a summer vacation!"
Young readers will be swept up in Peter's adventure, and David hopes they will find strength in the character's journey, and the message that they, too, can overcome the obstacles they face in their lives. At the same time, parents will appreciate the strong family values and wholesome innocence portrayed in the story, and they just might get transported back to their favorite childhood vacation spot in the process.
The King of Pawleys will be available in paperback June 12, 2018 on Amazon.com, Shop.BookLogix.com, and DavidBernsteinBooks.com. The eBook will be available June 27, 2018 on Amazon.
