THE BOOGIE TRAPP by Kerry Copeland Smith Giveaway & Review


Something happened to two boys over sixty years ago. The backwoods of Alabama in the 1940s set the stage for this edge of your seat thriller. Boogie and Trapper are best friends, known about town for their wild, annoying, obnoxious, and hysterically funny antics. Roaming the woods, swimming in the creek, playing Double Dare, smoking, cussing, drinking beer, and always trying to outdo each other. These two thirteen-year-old boys growing up in this time period have freedoms that would be considered absolutely crazy by today's standards. Riding their bikes on a drizzly April day, goofing off and having fun for hours, looking forward to the boy/girl party they are excitedly anticipating later today, rumors of kissing games and more make them silly and giddy. Then the day goes terribly wrong. They have found themselves in a desperate "no way out" situation. They are thrown into a horrific event that moves faster than a speeding bullet, a wild, white knuckled roller coaster ride, RUN Boogie, RUN, RUN................ A suspenseful, scary thriller, tragically horrific, it is a story that must be told, a promise that must be kept. Their lives will be changed forever - can they get away, and will they ever live to tell the tale?


Kerry Copeland Smith is the pseudonym of Harold (Hal) W. Brewer and also his alter-ego, Brewer will readily confess. “He was there waiting for me when they pulled me from my mother’s womb,” Brewer laughingly says. “Boogie is older, smarter, tougher and more daring, so I have been very fortunate to have had him around all these years.” Brewer, the youngest of four children, grew up in the small coal mining town of Bradford, Alabama, where his father was employed as a coal miner. His mother, a “stay at home mom,” was an accomplished seamstress, an avid reader, and strict disciplinarian, who “kept close tabs on me,” Brewer states. Brewer attended Mortimer Jordan High in Morris, Alabama and the University of Alabama in Birmingham. He was hired by Montgomery Ward Co. in 1964 and spent the next thirty-two years as an executive, in both their Retail and Logistics’ division. After retiring from the retail business in 1996, he formed his own Real Estate Investment Co., which he managed until fully retiring in 2008. “Boogie was there with me every step of the way, Brewer says. When things weren’t right and the going was tough, I called on Boogie and things got straightened out!” Brewer is also an accomplished artist. His paintings hang in numerous homes throughout the south. He currently lives in Tampa, Florida with his wife Tammie and their three cats. He has two sons (from a previous marriage), three grandchildren and one great-grandchild. 

My Review:
This is a great thriller and I could not read it in the dark! This would make a great movie! I really liked the action and how I could not stop reading, even though it was a thriller. I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.

  1. I dont like confined spaces. When I was a kid my friends and I were playing at the edge of the woods and there was this , I dont even know if it was a tunnel or pipe or what it was. It was small and cold and dark and we all took turns climbing in but one of the boys thought it would be funny to block me in so I couldnt get out and I was terrified. It has always stuck with me and still bothers me to be in caves etc

  2. Flying, probably because I'm not in control and the likelihood of survival in a crash is minimal.

  3. I think what scares me the most is the possibility that something in my house could break and it could go up in flames, aka fire scares me.

  4. Clowns and birds... in that order!! they creep me out!

  5. I am most scared of spiders and snakes as they are creepy, slimy, and often poisonous.

  6. The dark ... because I don't like having my eyes open and seeing ink. Death ... for obvious reasons. Spiders because ewww. And rats because ewww.

  7. Clowns creep me out, thanks to It.

  9. The dark is scary for me and heights (I can't even stand on a chair without freaking out).
