Summary: “I would be unhappy if I lied to myself and forced myself to be different purely for the sake of appearance or the approval of society.”
Angela Norambuena’s first book deals with the profound issue of honesty in modern society, a society that focuses so much on appearances, fitting in and having hundreds of friends on social media.
In this novella, James, 20, an introspective Sociology student wiser beyond his years and Benjamin, 22, barista and part-time Accounting-Arts student, learn the importance of being honest with oneself, with one’s feelings, with one’s tastes, with one’s heart.
They learn to understand how important it is to be true to yourself, despite what others may have to say about how you should live your life and be “normal.” Together they form a strong bond, and after many soy lattes and a few mishaps along the way, their happy friendship blossoms into love.
