Holding Hands consists of two YA short stories: “Phone Call” and “Allergic Reaction.” It is a short read (about 11,830 words).
“Phone Call”: Josh is an 18-year-old dealing with a tragic loss. He’s receiving unnerving phone calls that appear to be a cruel prank. He’s also falling in love with Rachel, his beautiful and smart science partner. With Rachel’s help, Josh sets out to discover who’s making the prank phone calls. What he doesn’t know is that lives–including his own–are at stake.
“Allergic Reaction”: Vicky has everything a teenage girl could want: great looks, popularity, and a good-looking boyfriend. Everything but the friendship of the quiet boy who used to be her best friend in middle school. Then something unexpected (and a bit humorous) happens, and she begins to see her perfect life in its proper perspective.
