Awkward Stages is a collection of short love stories. High school or growing into adolescence as a starting point for 'awkward stages' in the search for Mr. or Mrs. Right. Platonic love and rationalized thoughts until she dances with someone else. Being invited to a would be fantastic party which turns out to be lame. Encounters in a tree house or on Facebook to name a few. Mark Victor Young has a fine style to portrait convincing characters and mini plots to keep you engaged. Warning: the book cover looks more serious than the content. That certainly will make you nostalgic on your first dates. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0993855849, Paperback)

Collected Short Fiction - A girl and boy discover the difference between best friends and just friends. The summer before university is the catalyst for some strange longings. A woman wrestles with a difficult insurance claim which resonates with an event from her past. An aging writer gives a career-spanning interview with an unintended revelation. These and other great characters inhabit this collection of short stories which celebrate all of life’s stages. Praise for the stories: “There are so many good things in this story it’s hard to pick one. All I can say is I wish I had written it.” - Charles Pinch “Thanks for this potent kick of nostalgia. How important those days were to the adults we’ve become. Call that ‘The High School Theory.’” - Beverly Akerman, author of The Meaning of Children
