Brian McSpadden is always hungry. Does he have a disease? Worms? Does it have something to do with his being adopted? He spends his days at his crazy friend Danny’s house, hoping for snacks, but nothing seems to fill the void.
Then Brian receives a mysterious birthday card that says, Free Pizza. He soon discovers the card has nothing to do with food and everything to do with the big questions in his life: where did I come from, why did my mother give me up and is there anyone out there who will like me the way I am?

Meet the Author:
In his latest work, Free Pizza, McRae spins the highly emotional themes from his decidedly unfunny childhood into a brilliantly comic yarn. After being given up for adoption by his teenage mom back when single girls were forced to hide unplanned pregnancies, his adoptive parents didn’t exactly keep him under the stairs but, well, let's just say, there were spiders.
A lot has changed since then. McRae’s own children have now grown and he runs a small farm with his wife, who is herself an award-winning writer.

Free Pizza introduces me to G. C. McRae’s writing. It tells the story about Brian McSpadden, the adopted kid with two younger siblings and likes to eat…. a lot! What young boy who does not? He likes to hang out at his buddy Danny’s house. Which leads into a little bit of trouble for the pair. For his birthday, Brian received an unexpected card that says Free Pizza. With this card, he finds that his life will not be the same.
I have to be honest; I was sure what to expect with this one. But I found myself amused and hooked within the first few pages. This quirky and fun book had me laughing from the start. I never knew where and what Brian was going to do next. Reading his tale with his family was so very funny. And that friend, Danny, of his? I never knew what those two would get into. I liked the little twist when the card comes and Brian finds answers to questions that he has wondered. He has to figure out where he belongs, what is important in life and how to be true to himself.
I am giving Free Pizza four and a half stars. I thought it was a pretty good read that will keep the reader laughing out loud and, also, learn some very valuable life lessons. I recommend it. I would love to read more like this one by G. C. McRae in the future. I look forward to reading more by him.
I received this book from the author. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
