Story of Pally Thompson - a Southern girl who finds herself the subject of hometown boy gone big time, Bobby Rex's greatest hit. Everybody suspects that the things in the song really happened, but Pally knows the truth and in this book, she tells it. A good summer read.

Using todays standards, Bobby Rex's Greatest Hit would probably be categorized as YA. But I read it in 1988 when I was 12 and I thought it terribly grown-up. Because I read it so young, it has imprinted on me and I have developed an emotional attachment to every citizen of Orfax. Gingher is a writing professor here in NC. I met her once, years ago at a book-signing. She was warm and engaging. But I've never had the pleasure or opportunity to take one of her classes. Still, Bobby Rex is the standard to which I write and read. I'm grateful to her on so many levels.
