Topic: How to write a reflection over a book
June 20, 2019 / By Chet Question:
I'm not really into romance, but I don't mind it if it's written well. Also, it's a gay romance. I think it would be a twist instead of it being in girl's point of view.
Duke Monroe is a 1st year at Yale University. His hometown is Liverpool, England. He's attending Yale in order to fulfill his dream of becoming a journalist for New Yorker Magazine. When Duke was in his senior year old secondary school, he came out to the world he was gay. He was bottling it in all through secondary school, hoping to be treated normally. His single mother, and his 'ladies man of a twin brother' both are very supportive of him, and so was his best (any only) friend, Andrea.
However, some people at Yale aren't very supportive of Duke.. One bully (on a sport's scholarship) starts physically and mentally harassing Duke for being gay. It comes to a point where he threatens to kill him. Duke locks himself in his bathroom one night, and attempts to overdose on some pills. However, he sits and has a thought of reflection thinking he wouldn't end his life just because one neanderthal doesn't like who he is. He then holds his head up proudly, and walks the campus of Yale confidently.
After about a week later, he's hearing rumors about himself that's he apparently he tried to 'pick up' the person who was bullying him, and everyone completely turns on him; writing cruel things on his Facebook, getting notes in his backpack, even his roommates want to move out.
Duke runs in the nearest Starbucks by the campus crying his eyes out at the back table. He notices one of the employees come over to him and ask what's wrong. Duke soon explains what's been happening with the bully. The employee, Andrew, tells Duke he's been harassed for being gay pretty much every day. Duke pretty much has a firework go off in his heart when he finds out that there's a really cute openly gay guy around his college.
How is it so far?

OMG! That is great! It's original to the fact that you hardly ever see books about the Gay Community! It's realistic, yet it's still sweet. It shows how people treat people for being different and could very well teach a great lesson and hopefully change a lot of perspectives of the Gay Community. Great work.
This isn't a plot but rather an outline of the action. As that I like it a lot. The gay angle is interesting and the story is realistic.
