The debut novel from B.A. Bellec is a thought-provoking story that belongs next to The Perks of Being a Wallflower or any of the John Green classics. It has a unique and fresh style with lots of heart. It deals with some tough social issues but in a very grounded and true to life way. There are little pieces here for everyone. Layered and hard to decompress. You will reflect on your past as you finish the last few pages.
This is a story about being forced to move as a teenager. Along the way, there are plenty of interesting people including a counsellor, musician, shaman, and a business professor. A journey of discovery in a new city. An exploration of the mind of a teenager struggling to find his footing on adult life in the face of some painful revelations. Cozy up somewhere warm and enjoy!
Littered with music, meditation, advice, and pop culture, and even inspiring an EP, there is so much nostalgia, inspiration, and depth here it is hard to absorb it all. It might be better the second time you read it because once you know the ending, everything changes.
