Volume 13 Number 4
This winner of the Flare Competition for young writers (13-18) fills all the requirements for a book likely to be popular with the non-dscriminating young teen, the one who thinks Flowers In The Attic and Carrie are the best books he/she has ever read. Horror, violence, and very obvious foreshadowing abound.On the plus side, this young author exhibits a good ear for current adolescent speech, a keen eye for detail, and a definite talent for transposing both into print. If the curtailment of self-indulgence that frequently comes with maturity materializes, future writing from this young author should be awaited with favourable anticipation.
