Better at Pretending

The story works on several levels. It explores the angst of teen interrelationships, the value of being nonjudgemental, and being accepted for what and who you are. It explores burgeoning love relationships. It also explores how the human psyche protects itself by creating an alternative form of self. This makes for an engaging read.

The prose detracts from the story. At times it flows nicely but it tends to be jerky and convoluted. Some basic editing for flow, word choice, and grammatical correctness before uploading would improve the reader experience. A good story like Better at Pretending deserves that attention.

I'm excited to read the final chapters.
