Red Headed Book Lover
     -Unsentimental in tone, the story is both tortuous and tantalizing to read.
     -some scenes are nearly voyeuristic. The story moves forward without pause; events come together seamlessly, and they hold attention well.
     - Self-reflection and commentary are not a part of the mix, though; this story is just about its action, and it comes in succinct and vivid prose
     -. With raw curiosity, the text moves through the underbelly of urban ghettos, the military, and deep wildernesses
     -Dedicated to the author’s son but inspiring to all, Charlie’s Kid is an addictive debut based on a true story of a life lived beneath the radar. Honest and unvarnished, it is a story in the best sense of the word, pulsing with lessons born from difficult experiences and told out of love, not for glory.

I was lured by the grasshoppers on page one like an unsuspecting bluegill and hooked on page three. No amount of struggle or nights or days released me from Charlie’s Kid.

      -A debut novel, based on true events
     - leaves readers with some indelible passages
     -A grim but emotionally raw portrayal of a harrowing existence
      -Early in the story, the author “speaks” in a childish voice but uses more mature language as he ages, subtly rendering his account more real. His characterizations of individuals he met are skillfully drawn and fully realized. Some may find the story, told conversationally, too heartwrenching to read. But despite Oljer’s terrifying litany, most will be drawn in, anxious to learn the outcome.
      - ...Charlies’ Kid is an inspiring tale about redemption, kindness and nobility.
