I went back and picked up from where I left off. I Read up to page 35 at the scene break.
Pretty funny stuff. I seldom laugh out loud when I read, but I did several times. And they are not one-liners. They are the characters talking.
The dialogue skips along, and then you hit us with something even funnier. You take the time to let your characters speak. Young people searching.
You certainly aren't worried about being "politically correct!" That's a great thing today, as everyone is so damn "tetchy" and overly sensitive about things. You are not afraid to let the characters say what they want.
The young characters are so wonderfully awful and funny...but charming in their naivete and youth! And despite the humor there is a tinge of darkness lingering underneath.
I don't know where it is going, but I am enjoying the ride so far.
