A to Z

   (9 reviews)

He lived alone with a father who beat the hell out of him. His mom abandoned him years ago. There was a roof over his head, and food, when his dad let him eat. One day, all that changed: he ran in fear for his life with nothing but the clothes on his back. And his journal.

This story contains episodes of physical, sexual and psychological abuse of a teen. There are episodes of violence.  There is also sex between teenagers. Please don't read this if these things bother you. If you continue, be aware of them, and read with appropriate caution.

One of the best stories that I have read over the past year. A real rollercoaster ride that you won't want to get off. I went around for a second time. A great ending and a clever title. Well worth reading.

So much sadness and painful moments, but such a beautiful and loving journey. One of the best stories I read. It makes me ache for your next long story, hope you give us another brilliant piece soon. Thank. You. @Parker Owens :worship:

I brutally harsh story that is one of the best I've run across on GA.  Beautifully told and difficult to put down.  Those late nights of reading "just one more chapter before bed" were well worth it and I know I'll read this again and again.

This is one of the stories that made me join GA so that I could 'like', if not actually comment, on the wonderful, absorbing writing.

 

This novel is a journey of discovery for its characters and readers alike. At times, it is a difficult read but that is because the author believes in portraying the truth, and sometimes life is painful and distressing. These episodes often result in tears but they are more than offset by the joy, laughter, kindness, healing and love offered to the hero, and so, to the reader. 

 

The author's fundamental belief in the goodness that most of humanity harbours, shines through this amazing, thought-provoking, touching, and above all, gripping novel. One to be read and re-read many times.

Great story would love to see another saga of this story, what happens to the characters after the end? Parker you are a great writer always keeping your readers in suspense, please keep up the good work.

I was glued and riveted from start to finish. I felt it all, I cried, I laughed, I felt anger and warm tingly goose bumps. What a great writer, I was totally absorbed.

Absolutely amazing story which I would highly recommend. The story of Andy is an absolutely fantastic read and will have you wanting to read more. @Parker Owens should be proud he wrote this superb piece.

As you read the first section, just keep repeating to yourself, ‘It gets better,’ ‘He survives this,’ and ‘Lots of other people managed to get through this and they rave about the story!’  ;-)

 

A classical story arc where the beginning is almost unbearably dark leading to a conclusion that’s almost unbearably bright!  ;-)

 

 

This is a story you’ll want to Comment on and Discuss! Many have joined GA specifically to do so because of this story. It’s really that good!  ;-)
