Bowtie...'till I DIE.
Samuel Clearwater, A.K.A Preppy, likes bowties, pancakes, suspenders, good friends, good times, good drugs, and a good f*ck.
He’s worked his way out from beneath a hellish childhood and is living the life he’s always imagined for himself. When he meets a girl, a junkie on the verge of ending it all, he’s torn between his feelings for her and the crippling fear that she could be the one to end the life he loves.
Andrea ‘Dre’ Capulet is strung out and tired.
Tired of living for her next fix. Tired of doing things that make her stomach turn. Tired of looking in the mirror at the reflection of the person she’s become. Just when she decides to end it all, she meets a man who will change the course of both their lives forever.
And their deaths.
For most people, death is the end of their story.For Preppy and Dre, it was only the beginning…

Part 1 in a 3 book series called Preppy: The Life & Death of Samuel Clearwater. This is related to the awesome King series which includes the stories of King and also Bear. It is essential that you read these books in my opinion, because if you have, you like me, will be seriously desperate for this book.
So anyone who reads my reviews will know that at this point I will give you a brief, spoiler free overview of the story. On this occasion I find myself stuck with what to say to be honest. This book as I have previously suggested is the one everyone has been waiting for. Preppy above all the other awesome characters in this collection of dark and violent stories, is the star; and that is for many reasons. I am not going to go into why as I would hate to give away spoilers relating to the story arc as a whole, but if you have read them you will know; believe me.
Samuel Clearwater is one fucked up dude, but one that will also melt your heart. He is dangerous, dark, a sexual deviant; seriously the list could go on. But in this one character you also have someone who is loyal to those he loves and has a kindness to him and light-hearted personality that is such an opposite to everything we think we should know about him. Preppy: The life & Death of Samuel Clearwater is his story warts and all and I absolutely devoured it.
We go back in time to before the start of the original stories. We get to see the danger that Preppy can bring in the blink of an eye, but we are also introduced to Dre. Dre is a junkie, a hardened Heroin addict who has really hit rock bottom. From dark beginnings, she and Preppy form an unlikely bond. Don’t go in thinking this is hearts and roses… Have you read T.M Frazier’s take on romance? This is twisted and dark and at times pretty damn sick, but it is what it is and it works… or does it? As always with this authors books, you never quite know where the road will take you, but you are certain of a really wild ride. We delve further into Preppy, and what makes him tick. It isn’t pretty, but anyone who knows this character knows that as much as your stomach will be turned, you will laugh and cry with him as well; his humour filter knows no bounds. And this my friends is why I couldn’t get enough of this book. Yes at its core this book is a dark, dangerous novel, set in a world not many people would wish to visit. But it is also light and funny and shows a man who is charming and charismatic and has so much love to give if he lets himself love.
So guys, if you are yet to jump into the lives of those who inhabit Logan’s Beach… DO IT! These are books not to be missed. Preppy is a perfect addition, and yet another 5 Crown read from me for this author. He is as he calls himself a “Bad-Ass Mofo”, but one I dare you not to fall in love with. Bring on part 2!
