A Young Woman With A Past

Leaf has a past. A reputation that dates back three generations; but she's also strong willed and determined to keep a promise she made long ago to the only person who ever cared for her. Despite her tragic home life, and her track-record with guys, she is determined to graduate her senior year. To do so she has to wrestle with those urging her to give up. Her experience in life tells her that guys are only looking for one thing from her, but when she meets someone new who wants to know her heart and not her body she faces a challenge harder than fighting to finish school--the challenge to believe he really is different and that what he says about her inner beauty really is the truth.

A Young Man With A Passion

Jay has a dream he is determined to follow: His love for drawing portraits and his passion to express the inner beauty he sees in others. Despite his parent's pressure that he pursue studies in the medical field, he continues to pursue his passion for drawing. But other challenges in his life are not so easy to overcome. When his school life becomes unbearable because of bullying he transfers out of New York and moves in with his aunt and uncle in a small town that feels a million miles away. It's there he plans on finishing his senior year. It's there that he first meets Leaf, the Red Fox, and everything in his life changes.

A Teenage Romance That Can't Be Stopped

He wants to help her see her pure inner beauty. She wants to help him discover his heart of courage. Between them stands an entire senior year, led by her recent ex-boyfriend, who are determined to keep them apart. But where fear is used to separate, love is embraced to overcome


I'm not a fan of “instant love” in stories, but I liked this little novella. Both main characters, Jay and Leaf, each deal with their own issues. Jay runs from bullies...literally; Leaf has embraced her bad girl reputation even though it isn't who she really is. Fate has drawn them together, each helping the other conquer their issues.

I really liked Leaf's Grandmother's back story (new dress, new socks, new shoes). That was such a sweet and endearing part of this little novella.

I believe this would have made a better novel length story because as a novella the story is rushed and the character development is slightly lacking.

Overall, I liked this story and also the cover art :)

Yeah that's a problem I find with most short stories. I'm almost always left wanting more.

Yeah, some stories work well as a novella, then you have others that are more complex and need the extra length to tell the story properly.
