    Story
    "A lesson in being true to yourself ..."
    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that the story focused on Zach, Key and their friends and the relationships among them. This is also a romance but it is written in a sweet way with no overt sex scenes to make anyone uncomfortable.


    What does Luke Avery bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    While Mr. Avery could be a little 'dry' at times, I felt that there were moments when he gave the characters and the scenes the emotion that they needed. He did draw me into the story and kept me entertained. I would listen to another of his works to see what he does with other genres of books.


    If you could take any character from Zach's Secret out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would love to go out to eat with Ms. Trevott. Her back story was sad but she endured on and was making a difference to her students. I appreciated that. There always seems to be that one teacher in every school that just connects with the students in a way that makes it all ok.


    Any additional comments?

    Zach's Secret is the story of a young man, a senior in high school, his coming to terms with who he is. This is a book that everyone should listen to or read. I would highly recommend it. Many things can be learned from this story.


    I received a copy of the book for free in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "Fairly good short story, but play the sample first"
    Any additional comments?

    I definitely should have played the sample before downloading this one. If I had, I would have gotten the Kindle version. The reader sounds completely bored, even in scenes where the characters are very excited. I finished it, but only because I drive a lot and wanted to listen to something new while driving.
