FREE PDF e-book edition of the first installment of the serialized novel Meeting Dennis Wilson by Max Harrick Shenk.

15-year-old Beach Boys fan Margo LeDoux has a crush on Dennis Wilson and she wants to meet him... except... her boyfriend Scott doesn’t really like the idea: “I don’t want you runnin’ off and bein’ some groupie!” ("So?" replies Margo.)

Meanwhile, Margo’s best friend (and our narrator) Brian Pressley and his girlfriend, Christy Kelly, decide that they’re going to “take steps” toward going all the way, steps which seem to get them into trouble no matter how careful they are.

And then there’s Christy’s big sister Kathy, who’s stricken with a bad case of senioritis and a boyfriend who’s avoiding her just weeks shy of the senior prom... and Brian’s buddy Marty, a shy kid with a Beatles obsession and a crush on Margo... and Margo’s softball catcher Tara Longbaugh, whose parents have a connection that could get Margo closer to meeting her heartthrob... not to mention parents, brothers, sisters, classmates and teachers who just seem to make life harder, not easier.

In Margo’s words: “How do we put UP with all these people?”

And how can a girl with a rockstar-sized crush meet the drummer of her dreams?

Meeting Dennis Wilson is a coming-of-age novel about love and friendship and growing up, and mostly about the things we do to put distance between ourselves and the things-- and people-- we love and want most.

And music. You can almost hear the car radio playing.

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING: “Today marks the day that I officially add Meeting Dennis Wilson to my ‘Favorite Coming of Age Books’ list. I adore John Green and his work [and] I fell in love with this book just as easily as I fell in love with Paper Towns or An Abundance of Katherines. Meeting Dennis Wilson can easily be compared to a teenager who’s just coming of age: awkward, quirky, hilarious, and loads of fun to be around. Meeting Dennis Wilson is incredibly comical, sweet, and ultimately feel-good.” (The Literary Connoisseur)

Reader Review excerpts from Amazon and Goodreads: "SHENK'S HOME RUN! A great story with subtle undercurrents between the characters that hook the reader... (like) a teenager who's just coming of age: awkward, quirky, hilarious, and loads of fun to be around... incredibly feel-good... friendship and the emergence of first love combine with some downright laugh out loud writing... a great beach read... an engaging story with a killer soundtrack.... a wonderful book with great details... a story for all ages... I can't wait to read the next one... I started reading and could not stop... I recommend this book to anyone at any age."
