This was a sweet coming of age story about two young adults who were navigating the cusp of adulthood. Lynn was a 20 years old student at the Horne Institute of the Arts. When she met Majestic, he was fresh from an 18-month prison sentence; he served for his deceased brother’s crime. Majestic previously attended the same school prior to his incarceration. Lynn had spied Majestic from his prior time at the school, so this time she made no bones about making their introductions. Although Lynn’s life experience differed from Majestic, they had enough in common with the artistic side to make a firm connection. The story spoke about a young man who’d been dealt a bad hand and reveled about how he proceeded to make the best of his new situation. The professor Majestic worked with previously made recommendations which helped Majestic in his quest to get back to his plans for a vastly-changed situation.
After Lynn and Majestic established a nice friendship and started hanging out together; I knew something would soon get in the way of their next level friendship. The story craftly navigated the sharp terrain of their getting to know one another stage in their life, as well as the constraints associated with their different upbringing and lifestyles. Majestic had a young child by a young lady who did not always make the best decisions. I kind of understood, some of her issues; as she was not brought up in a two-parent home with loving support. Kayla’s choices could have had a far-reaching effect on Lynn and Majestic’s relationship, had Lynn not been the mature one in their relationship. I was happy Lynn never viewed his baby girl in a bad light. The connection between Majestic and Lynn was PG good. The story was better suited for a Young Adult audience more so than this seasoned reader. There were no intimate moments sexually, and only one reference to a sexual act being carried out. With that said, this should not deter a ready from reading and enjoying this nicely-told coming of age story. My rating 4.0 Stars.
