Verbaleyze Press, May 1, 2020 - Fiction - 100 pages
Growing up is never easy. It is even more so when the divide between the private internal world and the external perceptions of others is greater than for the typical teenager. 17-year-old James, well-liked and engaging, must negotiate an evolving relationship with his closed-off, yet brilliant friend Eileen as their friendship flirts with romance even as it takes an unsettling turn into adult realities.
through Eileen stretches the grey space between the normal and the abnormal, solitude and loneliness, friendship and romance. Its narrative investigates the phenomenon of loving someone versus living someone. What does it mean to know someone so well, you experience their thoughts as if they were your own?
