Make It Right by Ron Yates is a novella and a series of eight short stories. These stories chronicle the despair of people who make the wrong choices, bad choices that have negative effects on others. An English teacher, lonely and hating himself; an orphan with no place to call home, on the cusp of manhood; a factory worker who can't seem to stop himself turning violent; disturbed teenagers and more. Every story will tell you how they went bad, how they caused destruction and havoc among friends, family, and complete strangers. Of how they made it right.
Make It Right: A Novella and Eight Stories by Ron Yates is an interesting look at the harsh realities of life. The characters may be fictional but we all know at least one of them, maybe more, and every story is realistic and believable. Trouble comes in all shapes and sizes and Ron has covered some of these troubles eloquently. His style of writing is straightforward, descriptive, and leaves no doubt as to what he is trying to convey. He made his characters into people we could all identify with and there is truth in every story, along with plenty of drama. He takes us on a journey we may never want to repeat, a view of the bad side of life, a path that some will, sadly, continue along. Others will find it in their hearts to see what they are doing and turn things around, to make it right as Ron says. Although there are some scenes of a sexual nature, I believe that this book is suitable for young adults upwards; for some, they may see themselves in time to stop what they are doing; for others, it’s a lesson to be learned – don’t go down that route.
