Review: Short. Why yes, yes we are missing two colors there, aren’t we.

Brendan has a crush on Alan, I think, and he doesn’t want his best friend Alex to know. Alex doesn’t like Alan very much, but he wants to support his friend. Then somehow, they all end up in a tunnel or the subway, and then you learn all the friends have a secret that could be deadly. Okay now someone is having sex against the wall in the dark tunnel, and it’s a little bit sexy BUT, I still couldn’t really tell you who was having sex.

I read this book, twice, and I’m still confused. The names of characters ran together and even after two runs, I couldn’t completely tell them apart. The author went from using first names to last names and there were entirely too many characters for 17 pages.

This seems to be more of a draft for a book than an actual book. I’m sorry guys but this one did not work for me.
