"Bert Murray takes us on a fast-paced, often funny ride back to the college days of 1985. A good-looking and sensitive nineteen year old in his second year at fictional Elerby College in upstate New York, Colin Preston drinks too much, loves classic rock (especially the Beatles) and falls in love with the most beautiful sophomore on campus. The novel is chock full of interesting characters, beautiful people, enthusiastic sex and adolescent angst. This book is very enjoyable and leaves an extremely pleasant after-taste when finished." -- Amazon reviewer

"The first thought that went through my head was that I wanted to kiss her. Feel her tender lips against mine." - Colin Preston Rocked And Rolled

FUNNY, MOVING, BITTERSWEET, AUTHENTIC! A novel that will take you back to your college days! A passionate love story that is filled to the brim with adolescent angst, drama, romance, laughter and tears!

"With Colin Preston Rocked and Rolled (Davanna), first-time novelist Bert Murray manages a feat that seems to have escaped many writers, mainly women, who try for a Young Adult readership but wind up delivering predictable, generic, forgettable adolescent chick lit. Murray, who delivers here a kind of hard-core Catcher in the Rye, has a good ear for the lingo and speech rhythms of bright 19-year-olds, particularly young men who, despite their vulnerability looking for love, obsess about scoring.” - Joan Baum, Dan's Papers

"Murray draws Colin with immediate emotional pungency...A coming-of-age story with plenty of sting, where love is not only blind, but it blindsides." - Kirkus Reviews

Meet Colin Preston. 19 years old and a student at Elerby University in Upstate New York.
He drinks too much. Lives for the Beatles, John Lennon and classic rock.
Falls for the most beautiful sophomore on campus.
First Love. Raw. Honest. Real.
