One teenage boy with one massive dream. What would he endure throughout his life to see its manifestation? The answer: A LOT.
Meet Mr. James “Jimmy” Merchant, a member of the 1950s Doo-Wop group Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers. The group is famously known for their original #1 hit song, Why Do Fools Fall in Love.
In this first installment of a two-book series, you will learn about Jimmy’s passion for music and how his God-inspired dream turned into reality—but it did not come without dramatic twists, turns, and tragic moments along the way. Additionally, you will encounter various characters that played an integral part in not only his growth but also the establishment of the music group as global superstars. Noted as “The Rage of the Age” during the height of their fame, Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers were the beginning of the youth movement in music, and their historic style continues to resonate with artists of today in both Pop and Rock ‘n Roll.
Within, Jimmy exposes a dirty side of the music industry that may be shocking to many. However, his words are intended to warn those aspiring to enter the entertainment industry, as he prays others will be aware of and avoid the pitfalls.
No matter your generation, you are sure to connect to Jimmy’s story in some way, shape, or form. He tells it all without regret or shame, for God has set him free from the pains of the past. The transparency of his truths will bless your spirit and touch your very soul. You will praise God, laugh, cry, cringe, and rejoice—all while reading this page-turning account of “A Teenager’s Dream.”
