    Friday Nights Don't Last Forever

    A coach never knew which one would eventually go down during the season with a concussion, pulled hamstring, torn ligament, busted knee, shattered wrist, dislocated shoulder, broken collarbone, fractured jaw, or broken heart when he found his girlfriend in bed with a wide receiver who hadn't caught a pass in three games. The number of debilitating injuries was endless and sometimes self-inflicted. It was damn hard for a kid to remember the snap count when he was high on meth or a joint of Mary Jane. What is there to do after high school, in a small-town, that no one has ever heard of before? Friday Nights Don't Last Forever is a novel based on football, where a couple of high school football players have to make as much of their life after school with what has been handed to them. Pirtle is a very brutally honest and enigmatic author. His stories may take a little getting used to, but it is worth it. This story shows depth and overshadows two main characters after losing the state championship game. Friday nights as they know it—is over. Casey Clinton and Lucas Calhoun only associated with each other on the field. Casey threw the ball and Lucas caught it. Outside of football, neither boy had anything to really base a friendship with, but they find themselves similar in many aspects than originally thought. They both live in a small town called Avalon in Alabama, where no one ever comes...least of all major sports recruiters—until now. After hearing about Casey's throwing arm, they start flocking in fast. When things start hitting the fan, primarily Lucas' mother found dead in a ditch and an unfaithful preacher's wife, Casey and Lucas come to a mutual agreement that if Casey accepts a position, he'll mention his name for a pickup. All that changes when Casey realizes that the girl who he always thought he'd marry, winds up pregnant...and he hasn’t been lucky with her yet. These two boys have been handed the rough end in life, but what they do with what has been given to them is the ultimate make or break. Pirtle is an interesting author, his writing is a different style to other authors that generally write in this genre. His words are brutally honest and his characters are developed quite well. This novel does begin slow, but then picks up the pace as the plot thickens. There are several spelling and grammatical errors with this novel, but it may not be a hindrance to readers who don't classify these mistakes as being high on their list of what makes a good novel. If you are interested in sports fiction, you may want to pick up this novel. Warning: it is targeted for a mature audience due to the sex, violence, profanity and drug usage throughout the story.
