Pretend You're Someone Else

There are currently no reviews.

Two teenage boys growing-up in Georgia during the 1970s begin secretly dating each other so they won't be found out. For revenge they pretend to date girls in their class and end up treating them horribly. When one of the girls ends up pregnant, their lives change drastically. The boy reluctantly ends up marrying this young woman and hides who he really is from his son. As the years go by we learn that his son has the exact same secret, but with a twist.

Hmm... It feels like you are flashing me a still picture. It is intriguing, but I don't really understand what is happening. I know there is a decision that needs to be made but I'm not sure what that decision is for. I'm not sure if they they already know who the girl is or will find out. I also want to know what the secret is. So in short, I need to read the next chapter.

yes!:) I kinda purposely made the prologue full of unanswered questions. Sorry about that. Chapter 1 is long. I might have to divide it, and upload pieces at a time.

You definitely got me interested, keep posting, I'm gonna read your story here and give you the reps and reviews needed and deserved. I liked this start it was both ominous and rueful. The images flowed in my mind like a movie scene, not at all a still shot for me. Yes!

I'm glad you liked. I joined a glbt review forum on writing.com & I still didn't get the help I wanted! I'm glad I found this site.

There is definitely mystery here. I like a bit of mystery to open up a story. At times it was a bit difficult for me to keep all the different characters straight, but then this is only the prologue. Will have to read chapter one very soon. :) Thanks for the read!

Ooooh... intriguing. So many questions and secrets. And I bet you are not going to tell us what the big decision is and who it concerns either, are you :)
