This story follows young Logan Moten as he finds himself, gathers support, forms a team, and lives the life of a teenager focused on his goals.
This novel is different. It was not written by someone who majored in literature in college. It was not written by an esteemed author or anyone with even a high school degree. It was written by a fifteen year old who wanted to share a story with the world and could not find a place to put it. After tens of thousands of words, countless edits and peer-edits by a group of teenagers, a novel began to emerge. This story, Taking the Course, is that of a boy growing up in New York City with the desire to golf. Follow him as he goes through the process of finding himself, quarreling with his school, gathering support, making a team, developing a crush, and then nearly losing it all.
The book is now available on the Kindle Store.
