Hot Hands by Erica Pike
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
For weeks, college student Casper has been the victim of sail-by goosing and groping. The problem is that Casper would very much like to get more than groped by those wonderful, big, hot hands. With a journal full of clues, he sets out to discover who his mystery groper is. However, he may be in serious trouble once he discovers the ominous identity, and it’s not because of the light bondage the groper seems to prefer.
Hot Hands is the first of five in a series of short stories. Each story is independent of the others and each covers a deep issue. Hot Hands focuses on the effects of high school bullying for being gay.
I really enjoyed this short story it was a quick read the wrting was good the author made it quite enjoyable. The book touched on the subject of being bullied how it affected Casper but also how it was for the tormentor who had those exact same feeling but handled it in a very different way. Being in the closet at a young age Jamie made some horrible choices. I would love to read more about Casper and Jamie to see if they could get past their history. Who doesn't love a happy ending though. Great writing Erica and I gladly will read and review anything you have to offer. I gave this story 4 stars as the writing was excellent and left me wanting more.
