Wow! I have to say this book is perfect for all teens! I work with ex-ed students and myself and three of them just recently checked out My Twisted Summer in our school library. I have to tell you that when they finished their tests and had free time, they pulled this book out from their backpacks and were intently reading. I couldn't believe it! These kids hardly ever read! One of them is always so amped up and can't sit still. I hardly recognized him. He was quietly reading. The others are easily distracted and unfocused, but they were reading this book too! I have to say this is one of the best teen books out there and I urge you to kick back and read this book! Awesome job, Mr. Torres!
For all the readers out there, This is the best book i have ever read, by far!! I love the plot, its got action, babes, and SURFING!! What more can a guy ask for? This book can relate to any teen out there, even if they do not surf. Its a story of friendship, survival, and watching life from the green room. When things get good, the swell picks up, the girls come out and the adrenaline pumps throughout the characters' bodies. Read the book its fairly priced and is a short read: which if you are like me that's the only good kind of book. Great job Mr. Torres i really enjoyed the novella.-Ian
I enjoyed your novel. It progressed quickly and had plenty of action to keep the reader interested, which I think will appeal to the age group you had in mind. I especially liked the second half of the novel after the boys have been quarantined. The boys' frustration of being restricted and trapped came across well. My favorite part of the novel was when Solon was relocated to Ft. Myers. The portrayal of his discontentment with not being able to surf was convincing. - Virginia
