Speaking of realistic, one of the ways this book stands out is the way it portrays teenagers and sex. Books like the Harry Potter series always strike me as fantasy for more than the magic -- they are also fantasy because the boys are complete saints! I had lots of guy friends as a teen, and I know that sex is always on their minds. I think 'Storm' is like 'The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian' by Sherman Alexie, true to what boys are actually thinking about without being graphic. Not an easy job for a woman writer!
And sex isn't in this book to be gratuitous. In the middle of Storm's roller coaster story, the author slips good messages in there about the pitfalls of meaningless sex, what a healthy relationship looks like, and how getting help really works. For readers who like the Young Adult genre, this is a great read. For actual young adults, this is a great read with a few life lessons snuck in.
Melissa is a creative and talented author. Through her writing she helps the reader understand that no one is alone in their struggles and that the future is full of hope. I look forward to reading other books by Melissa Kline.
