JamesSavik Posted February 23, 2015 Report Share Posted February 23, 2015 I searched several times to see if this gem had ever been commented on. Having found no comments, it's up to me to tell you all that this short novel is art. OK- we do what we do. Sometimes we do it right and we surprise ourselves. I'm not sure that anything I ever did was art. Maybe Freethinker or Cole or Elecivil. But I digress. Fredric nailed this motherf**ker to a tree. We've done teen romance to death. Done it. Done it over. Set it on fire, bulldozed it and redone it. This story is from somewhere else entirely. The voice in this story is amazing. I knew that guy OK? You see Aiden, the protagonist of the story is a smart ass like me. This character come alive on the page right in front of your face. If you haven't read this story. It's like a Jedi writers mind trick. I've never seen anybody, ever do/use/create a voice like this. It so reveals the character that you just know he's sitting there on the page laughing back at you. Now- go read it! If you've already read it, read it again just for the voice. Fifteen by Frederic Fredric. Dude. You're awesome. Quote Link to comment
