Author Neil R. Beller Jr. uses his merry, yet mischievous memoirs to wrap you up in the warm blanket of his youth. The memories he paints a picture of aren't sappy, wistful, or mushy though. They are bursting with chuckle-provoking antics and with humorous sentimentality that we can all relate to. Born and raised in the quiet suburb of Carney, Maryland in the '60s and '70s, this Baltimore native's novel contains tales of growing up with a father who employs a stare-and-breathe method of discipline, an endearing, flaming red-headed mother who disciplines his antics in public and laughs at them in private, and a band of neighbors and friends who join Neil in his quirky misadventures. Allow him to transport you in the Way Back Machine to a time when simple fun was enjoyed by all. Take the "big blue bus" down memory lane to Missing Pine Park.

A beautiful, bittersweet and laugh out loud memoir that will leave you wishing for a simpler time, when drinking from the hose didn't cause immediate death. --Shari Elliker, Actress & Radio Personality
A combination of The Wonder Years and A Christmas Story. A look back at growing up that will vividly bring back memories of your own childhood. The neighborhood and city you grew up in may have looked different, but what made us all tick was the same! --Marty Bass, Television News Personality, WJZ-TV
After meeting Neil at Orioles Fantasy Camp, not only did I discover he could pitch a baseball, but I also found out he could pitch a hilarious story! Baseball fans and the like will surely relate to his childhood dreams of being a major leaguer. Everyone else will simply want to be a kid again. I wish I could use his Way Back Machine to relive my own childhood, because I would absolutely skip my awkward years. --Bill Swaggerty, Former Baltimore Oriole
