I am smarter than you, I cheated and bought the book. If you liked the first book, then this the second book will be a rare pleasure. Sophomore Year is not more of the same the following year. Sophomore means wise fool, and David fits the description. Growing up sucks, the little lies we told ourselves turn out to be harmful to us and to those around us. I like being mature, I just hated maturing; wisdom comes with experience and experience comes from a lack of wisdom.
While not all the stories on SOL are porn it is a porn site and there is plenty of sex, certainly a hell of a lot more than I got in high school. And it in addition it is well written and arousing sex, I never judged that it had been thrown into the story just because it was expected.
G Younger knows football, and he also knows baseball. He understands coaching and technique and if you are at all interested in either sport or both than you are in for a special treat. I got tired of getting beat up in high school and I am a coward anyway, so the only sport I went out for was track because I learned early on I could outrun the bullies. I loved football, but I also graduated high school weighing a whopping 115 pounds. Now at 68 I need to lose almost that much. Damn.
I worked in the photographer's district in Manhattan in the mid 1970's and dated a number of vacuous and underweight models. The smart ones avoided me so I never met an Adrienne or a Kara; I know they existed, I was just on the wrong wave length and by the time I had the maturity to date the fine ones I was married.
The story however is about relationships and maturation in addition to sports and modeling. It is also a story with more than a few intelligent parents and a few dumb asses, pretty much like real life.
My strong suggestion is to send G Younger the $10 bucks and read the whole 900+ pages of story over a weekend instead of reading a chapter at a time once a week for the next who knows how long (actually, I know for how long and I am not telling).
A word here to the editor(s) and proofreader(s); well done, really well done. The story flows, the characters are believable and human and not perfect. The information on the various sports, on modeling and whatever else David gets into is accurate and accessible and eminently readable.
It is my fond hope that this story continues and that David reaches his goal of football on Sunday and that G Younger is still writing about it. Frankly, I don't give a damn about ...nah, why ruin it for you?
If you have not read the first book, what are you waiting for?
