Fifteen-year-old Charley Thompson wants a home; food on the table; a high school he can attend for more than part of a year; and, some structure to his life. But as the son of a single father working at warehouses across the Pacific Northwest, he's been pretty much on his own for some time. "Lean on Pete" opens as he and his father arrive in Portland, Oregon and Charley takes a stables job, illegally, at the local race track. Once part of a vibrant racing network, Portland Meadows is now seemingly the last haven for washed up jockeys and knackered horses, but it's there that Charley meets Pete, an old horse who becomes his companion as he's forced to try to make his own way in the world. A portrait of a journey - populated by a vivid cast of characters against a harsh landscape - "Lean on Pete" is also the unforgettable story of a friendship and of hope in dark times.

“Heart-breaking genius...”

A terrific novel from the Richmond Fontaine frontman with a hugely memorable teenage hero in the redoubtable Charley Thompson - a much put-upon fifteen year-old who is reeling from a peripatetic, chaotic childhood -... More
