I haven’t really thought too much about what I’m communicating about relationships, but if I had to pin it down, it’s that friendship and family are the most important relationships. I have two obvious romances in my book, but they are mild compared to most YA and don’t take center stage. Jonah does have a special lady friend. 😊 But they are friends first before Jonah falls in love with her.
Romantic love is amazing, but true love is more like a close and loyal friendship than a burning passion. That is what my story says about relationships.
My story is also generational. You can’t know who you are without knowing where you come from and who you come from. Family is important. I show this both in a blood and adoptive family.
