Someone’s Story is a work of fiction in the coming of age and family drama sub-genres and was penned by author B. A. Bellec. Written for mature young adult audiences, the book does feature some more sensitive themes such as abortion, death, bullying, and substance usage. The story focuses on the mental health journey of one young man when he is forced to move and this creates a huge upheaval in his life. As he struggles to find a new footing in a new space, we encounter the many ups and downs of modern teenage life, the difficulties that adjusting to adult feelings bring, and a few tear-jerking surprises along the way.
Author B. A. Bellec has crafted a masterpiece of emotive and well-rounded young adult fiction, one which holds a mirror up to real life and does not over or underplay life’s many dramas for a moment. As an accurate portrayal of mental health issues and insecurities, readers are sure to take comfort in the close, raw narration which explains how the protagonist feels and deals with uncomfortable situations throughout the tale. Though there’s plenty of serious stuff to unpack, the work is also balanced with funny, touching moments and solid life advice. The accompanying soundtrack really gives a new technological dimension to the reading experience as well, making the book a really immersive experience that is truly unmissable. Overall, I would highly recommend Someone’s Story to teen and adult readers alike: an accomplished and fully rounded reading experience.
