ON A REVIEW SITE:
This is a typical “coming of age” tale. Only, it really isn’t all that typical. Ray is an introverted type who would rather read an amazing book than get involved in any of the drama that surrounds him.
Unfortunately his best friend Kevin is all about the drama. And thanks to Anna, his love interest, he finds himself on the wrong side of the local bully Corey, who also has a crush on Anna.
Ray Ryan is a highly character driven story. The main character is actually the narrator of story. He tells his own story with the conviction that only someone who has personally lived it can.
Ray wants nothing more than to become a writer, and the only thing that can hold him back is his normal life experiences. On top of falling in love with the same girl that the school bully has a crush on, his best friend Kevin is also prone to trouble.
Overall the entire story line is both engaging and entertaining. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a quick and entertaining getaway.
Ray Ryan is a normal boy growing up in Nottingham, dreaming of becoming a writer, but one day his best friend makes some dangerous enemies and things begin to change. The road to happiness is a rough one, and it becomes even harder to traverse when the people you care about have lost their way. Tense and surprising, Ray Ryan tells the story of the joys and tragedies that beset one young man as he finds himself hurled violently into adulthood: a tale of loss, love and looking ahead.
