BEFORE YOU READ: This is a short story/novella ( a first for me) which was I'm writing for #CampNaNoWriMo. These characters may or may not be familiar to you if you've read or reading Finding the Pieces of Us, because this is Mariana and Evan's story. As always you can read this as well as my other books as standalone novels. They are considered companion novels, so no matter the order you will enjoy the story and love the characters more.
This short story is set in the 80's/early 90's as you read the love story between an unlikely interracial couple that will have to stand the disapproval of family and sees if the era of bright colors, mixtapes, card catalogs and phone calls can be enough?
This novel is told in alternating POV's. So Mariana's POV will be Side A + Evan's POV will be Side B. I thought about how there are 2 sides of a vinyl and this is set in a different time and thought it would be perfect.
Note: I did create the cover myself and the image is from Pinterest.
Mariana Williams is a loner. On purpose. She likes the company of herself and the musings of her notebook rather than hanging with people. She's known as the 'shy studier' among her friends and she's perfectly fine with that. She doesn't need any distractions as she is going to be the first in her family to graduate college. Especially not Evan Davis.
Evan Davis is known as the 'music man' among his friends. Not on purpose. It just happened, especially when his parents have sent him any tape cassette and vinyl he's wanted since he started college and feed his music addiction. Not to mention the girls on campus love him for it. When he does an impromptu tutor session one night with the girl known among his friends as 'Cheshire Cat' something changes that night.
Can the era of bright colors, mixtapes, card catalogs and phone calls can be enough?
