"Verity's Sunset" by Brett Galen


Verity's Sunset by [Brett Galen]

DESCRIPTION AS ON AMAZON:

John Tyson is the yearbook photographer at his school, but he continues to wonder if anyone sees the guy behind the camera. Signing up for an environmental workshop during Spring Break, he meets a girl named Verity with a zest for life and a mission to find the perfect sunset. As their friendship deepens, a dark secret is revealed. Will her secret be enough to keep them apart or will they be strong enough together to find Verity's Sunset?



The author crafted a sweet, endearing read that brought forth tears and imparted an important message. I liked the main character, John. His familiar high school plight - secretly adoring Donna, a girl he didn't think would ever date him - had a unique twist. Although he worried that no one saw him beyond his camera and his photographs, he learned to view himself and life through Verity's eyes; she, and her circumstances, helped him come out of his shell. The book had very few typos or mechanical issues, but the story could have been more impactful by removing "was" as a repetitive verb choice and replacing it with a powerful verb.
