Eating Between The Lines
Set in Newfoundland, Eating Between the Lines , is the story of Jackson, an adolescent, plagued with some very adolescent problems at home and at school. His parents' marriage seems to have reached a low point, and he is infatuated with Sarah, a new girl at school who isn't taking him too seriously. Other broader social issues perplex him too. When he discovers he can magically enter into the imaginary world of the books he reads, he fins solutions to his many dilemmas. Through a unique combination of realism and fantasy, Kevin Major succeeds in depicting the universal trials and tribulations of growing up.
