Review: “Different” Frank Mundo

‘Different’ is a fantasy story for teenagers. It really is a different sort of story and examines the feelings of and reactions to being other than the people one mixes with in everyday life. Frank Mundo takes a 12 year old boy on an emotional roller coaster journey in this highly imaginative and well written story. It is full of surprises.

I can’t help wishing that Mundo had chosen to write this in the first person. I feel I would have had a deeper sympathy with the main character, although we are not kept in the dark about most of his thoughts or responses. Detail is not missing at all in this narration, no lost threads, characters, or subplots.

There is adult language and some mild sexual references, which is the only conflict I have.

I look forward to reading more from Frank Mundo. His mind is quick, clever and fun.

I've read poetry since I was nine and have written creatively since I was fourteen (probably long before that). After writing book reviews and social comment, I decided I wanted to write poetry. I have no formal training, but I surround myself with poets and their writing. I am honing my craft. I have two published collections which I don't feel good about, but have been published by madswirl.com and other publications. I live on the south coast of England with my daughter. I am seriously ill.
