Praise for Define Trying...

"Reminded me in a way of those great 80's high school movies (ie. Can't Buy me Love, Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, 16 Candles, etc.) I liked the characters and would definitely read more of this story if the author decided to revisit these characters and story line." - John Belliveau

"Enjoyed revisiting high school. Glad my generation didn't hav

Breslin returns to Clearveil, a town he knew very well before he lost his father in a fatal car accident. That was when his mother packed up everything and he and his brother left town. When trouble found Breslin once again, they returned to Clearveil. Breslin was very anti-social growing up, and while that hasn’t changed, he’s attempting to take on the role of an extrovert. Students at his new school show an eerie interest toward him. It seems like people from every social class in the student ...more

After several edits I'm excited to finally be sharing Surviving: High School with you guys. This is a story that has been in the works for a while, and I believe it has the potential to be a great one.

Breslin has been through a lot, and life isn't about to get any easier any time soon. Coming back to Clearveil wasn't his choice. He didn't want to have to deal with gossip around why he was back, and why he left in the first place. Needless to say, he had no choice in the matter.

To everyone who read Surviving: High School, thank you. Thank you for all of your hard work. All of the advice and the constructive criticism. "Define Trying..." is the product of almost two years of editing. Is it perfect, no. Does it still have flaws, probably. We will iron those out when we get to them.

Thank you for enjoying the story. It really means a lot to me.
