Blurb: Summer Escape is a short story about two friends, Jake and Kedrin. Jake would like to be more, but doesn’t want to ruin their friendship. Kedrin would like more, but is afraid of rejection. Kedrin has joined Jake and his family on a camping trip and they’ve decided to set their own rules. Now they just need to be able to communicate their feelings with each other.
Review: This writing style was not for me. From a writer’s perspective, this story was difficult to read. I think it would make a great first draft, but it needs work as a manuscript. The storyline was undeveloped and the author would perhaps benefit from a beta-reader’s input.
As a reader, I think the feelings and emotions of young love would definitely appeal to young men coming of age. Having the courage to make their own rules and follow what felt right for them is a pretty impressive role model for young people. In that aspect, well done!
