A Tales from Foster High Story
Snarky yet good-hearted Robbie DeCaro made his first appearance in the pages of Tales from Foster High: End of the Innocence, years after the loss of his first and only love. A New York transplant, Robbie now decides that his work is done in the town of Foster, and the time has come for him to leave Texas.
Returning to his childhood home on Long Island, Robbie reunites with his family members. Each using their own unique methods, they try in vain to help Robbie reset to a life he knew before he left it all for the fairy-tale love he found, then tragically lost.
As he remembers some of the darkest moments from his past, Robbie wonders if he’ll ever find the “after” in “happily ever after.”
Wow. Just…Wow. Brilliantly done. Robert Halliwell takes the story of Robbie which John Goode started, and continues it in a similar snarky, sarcastic, witty way, but also in a way that absolutely blew. me. away.
As a HUGE fan of the series I was a bit worried that someone else was writing one of the books. I’m so happy to say I wasn’t disappointed with this installment. I was actually over the moon happy with the final product.
Robbie has long been my least favorite character…truthfully? His bitchiness and personality has been one that grated on me at every turn. But that opinion’s undergone a complete 180 with this story.
Bravo, sir. Brilliant.
