Struggling with his feelings for Brit and the language, Fred is further confused when he meets Brit’s flirtatious friend, Angel.

Escaping from a confrontation with Steve Harris, the neighborhood bully, Brit tells Fred her dark secret about Harris, and Fred’s world is turned upside down.

Life continues to throw Fred a curveball when he catches a baseball worth a small fortune. Further run-ins with Harris, a crazy family BBQ, and a chase through a mall all add to Fred’s American adventure.

“Brit and her Brit”, know that their young love will be followed by heartache when Fred has to return to England. But not before some final twists in the tale.

With believable characters, exciting events, humor, first love, education and a little sport thrown in for good measure. Across the Pond is read and enjoyed by people of all ages from the young to the young at heart.

  3. The last stop (though I do have a sneaky extra one tomorrow) on my virtual book tour month. It’s been great fun.

  4. This is a great book! It’s funny, it’s entertaining and light. Fast readers could read it in one sitting and then they’ll probably want to read it again.

    Some of what Fred deals with because he’s not familiar with American culture makes for humorous situations that an everyday American couldn’t recreate.

    Best of luck with book, Barry!
