Afternoon by Robert Lampros
(Excerpt from Goodreads) Afternoon is a novella for young adults about courage, faith in Jesus Christ, and growing up in a surreal and challenging world.
Andrew, Drew, has been struggling lately. One day he almost drowns and during this time spends time with God. He learns how he is letting different things affect him and learns that everyone deserves a second chance. He then goes on to change his life for the better.
I like the idea of this story. We all deserve a second chance, especially when you see how things have gone off course and can see how to correct them. A lot of people never get to this point in their life and it’s a great message for young adults without being too heavy and preachy.
The only negative thing I have for the story is that there is no order to the events. There is no clear step 1, 2, 3, etc. They bounce all over the place and continually trying figure out what is going on and when became bothersome.
Over all this is a good story and I think makes a good point for people. It’s one that is definitely worth checking out.
I received Afternoon for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
