Sally’s mother keeps playing Connie Stevens’ Sixteen Reasons when she should be playing ABBA or The Bay City Rollers. Sally wants four things. For the world’s handsomest man, Ray to notice her, for Greg the dag, to rack off, to get her ears pierced, and to experience her first kiss.
It’s 1975, everything is changing. Anything could happen.
Sixteen Reasons is a novella. It includes day dreaming, pain for beauty’s sake, balloon dogs, zombie guts, long haired men in leather, fireworks, and the sweetest lip lock this side of the hip, cool and groovy 70s. It's a companion story to Hooked on a Feeling which ideally should be read first.
