The first time I kissed a boy
Persuasion, the action or fact of persuading someone or of being persuaded to do or believe something
All my life, I was persuaded to blindly believe in things; that they would get better, that I would never fit in, that the way I felt deep down inside was wrong; that the love I felt was a mistake and a sin. But, whats a coming of age boy to do when all he desires is to kiss his best friend.
Growing up in the Blue Ridge Mountains, everything you do whether good or bad is looked upon with judgemental eyes. Just like the mountains that overshadow the valley below, they hide the secret bygones and people I used to know. From tragedies that can tear families apart, to secret kisses stolen in the dark.
Join best-selling author Daniel Elijah Sanderfer for this heartwrenching coming of age story about coming to terms with feeling different and about the bygone persuasions of the first time he kissed a boy.
