It’s About Love

Steven Camden

Real life is messier than the movies. 

He’s Luke. She’s Leia. Just like in Star Wars. Just like they’re made for each other. Same film studies course, different backgrounds, different ends of town. Only this isn’t a film. This is real life. This is where monsters from the past come back to take revenge. This is where you are sometimes the monster. And where the things we build to protect us, can end up doing the most harm…

A bold, thought-provoking novel from the exceptionally talented, Steven Camden.

Review

Don’t be misled, It’s About Love is about so much more. It’s about where you’re from and how you’re judged; revenge, confidence and the unresolved issues of the past; and the gulf between what we feel and what we’re prepared to face. It’s about a young man who dreams of becoming a film-writer but who struggles to find confidence in his own voice. Before he can succeed he must overcome his background, negotiate a new relationship with his older brother and bridge the ever-widening gulf between his new life and his old friends.

I found myself drawn to Luke’s passions and his foibles; he’s a sensitive and introspective artist of great potential, if he can only overcome his own self-doubt. Let author Steven Camden take you deep into the heart of a fascinating and compelling character through an artful combination of first person narrative mixed with film directions and ideas from Luke’s notebooks to experience Luke’s vivid and enticing world.

Highly recommended for ages 14 and up (and especially for boys).
