2 young boys...discovering nature and themselves.
Lovely little snippet.
Felt like an introduction...
and I would definitely like to read the rest of it if it ever comes to fruition.

New to me author. This is a YA MM novella set in Australia. Main characters are Aron and Daniel. Told from Daniels POV. Great writing, I’ll read more from this author.

What a sweet little morsel, wish it was longer. These boys have so much more to tell.
Delicate, hopeful, tight.

(too short, really).

Very short, young adult, more about blossoming friendship, which maybe the reader can imagine may develop to more as the guys grow older.
