How is Life Long Bet unique?

Significance: As a kid sometimes it’s necessary to have something that takes you away from reality and gives you a deeper connection than the outside world. I feel as though my book can provide help to anyone going through similar struggles, may it be friendship or home life issues.


Audience: This story is aimed towards pre-teenagers, or teenagers. For this age group I find it beneficial that they can pick up a book and resonate a deeper connection with. When I was around that age I found it difficult to find a book I had actual interest in. My book being realistic and having elements of fiction makes it unique and brings in a variety of audiences as well.


Why this book is free and will remain free:

This story is meant to be free because having any recognition as a writer is a huge accomplishment for me. I truly hope that people could have a connection to what I am writing, and benefit from it. I also hope that it will encourage kids in how much they want to read. This day and age many teenagers are absorbed into technology or materialistic things. Sitting down, taking your mind off stress, and reading for fun is what I truly want someone to do with my work. Having it cost money was never an option.
