Johnny and Jazzbo: A True Story
Taking place during the tumultuous times of the 60’s and 70’s, two young poverty- ridden men raised in the backwoods of Northwest Florida find themselves in Atlanta, Georgia fighting their way to being poor no more regardless of the cost. Dr. Johnny Savage and Otis Ikner experience life changing lessons when the effects of the Civil Rights Movement, Vietnam War, political assassinations, sex, drugs and rock and roll, draw this unlikely duo into dangerous encounters, riddled with adventure, drama, comedy, and romance. With hidden secrets that could destroy both their lives, they discover the true meaning of compassion, love, friendship, and respect for people of all colors and walks of life.

I'm a mother of two small children, so reading is a luxury these days. I could not put this book down! Anytime I could sneak in a few pages I did. And I was so sad when it was over. The way the story was told was as if you were there in the company of the characters. The local flair and history that's rooted in each location was so perfectly interlaced in the book that it made it that much more special and as if you'd visited yourself. What a treat it was to read! Great gift for any of your book loving friends!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible story!

Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on September 26, 2022

Historic story of two unlikely friends before and during the civil rights movement era. A time where friendships shouldn't be formed yet are and surpass the current social issues. . A bond that sharpens each other, and a story that travels through their lives, choices, decisions, and growth. Wonderful energizing words bring you to the same time, location as being described. Author, Kathryn Hardy, has a way to transform you into this well researched and accurate storyline. Incredible read, and well worth the short weekend it takes to devour the book!! Well Done!!
