My book, Vertere, is 40K+ words in 13 chapters. It's a YA urban fantasy narrated by a 16 year old boy named Gabe Beckett. I made a Pinterest board for it to show some of the themes in the story: bit.ly/Kp4B5C
He talks about his move from the art and intellect of New York City to the hazy neon and smog of Los Angeles, at the will of his parents.
Although hesitant to assimilate, Gabe does come around and meets a few characters who change his life- his friend Mick being one. The other being a brilliant older girl named Serrania (Seri).
Gabe is slowly introduced to information about the secrets of the unseen aspects controlling our world.
Vertere is a supernatural mystery. It leaves you wondering if Gabe and Seri will end up together sometime in the future, or if their love is completely lost.
