Story URL: Olivia & Ricky’s Odyssey to Rock Bottom
Genre: Teen Fiction/YA
Synopsis: (short first-part summary)
Olivia thinks she’s a nobody, plagued by school bullies and feeling lonely. But the new girl is set on becoming her friend, encouraging her to go after her long-time crush: Ricky, the school’s troublemaker. There’s just one problem. Olivia isn’t allowed to date.
But things take a drastic turn when Ricky is accused of assaulting Olivia’s friend, an assault he doesn’t remember, and Olivia is his only hope for an exoneration.
Secret Code/Password: An outsider’s view on my storyline. I do get reads, but hardly anyone leave comments, so I don’t have any idea about what people actually think.
Express or Full Queue: Express since that the only open list (and I don’t want to pressure you to read the entire thing…). I upload every Friday and am up to chapter 59 + a preface. – If you enjoy it, I will be happy to receive feedback on more than three chapters.
Anything you want me to specifically comment on: I’m concerned that my story comes off as a giant cliché in the first few chapters and that people will be quick to throw it aside for that reason. It isn’t until chapter 8 and onwards the first big incident happens (which makes the storyline different) and I don’t know if, or how, I should tackle that because I need to set the story/characters up too.
