5 Stars for Colors

From Redz World Reviews: Colors by author Russell J. Sanders is a very touching coming of age type of story. Neil has gone through trauma as a young child, he was betrayed by the very adults who should have been protecting him. His silence about the events has colored his entire teen years. He loves to sing in the church choir but the memories of what happened there years ago will not let him be free. He makes up personalities in his head, and acts like all is okay, when in truth that is the farthest from the truth.

Zane is the new kid in town and the only one that Neil feels he can be himself around. He wants to be an actor. They both build a friendship that is strong. With this friendship Neil learns to be accepting of himself just the way he is, and to finally be free. Beautifully done story with lots of angst and love inside. I really liked this one made me remember to always accept my own self just the way I am.
