Dorothea's Song by Ron Vitale
Peter is a dreamer. With his home life falling apart and his spiritual life in crisis, his safe haven is his French teacher-- the only adult willing to listen to his problems and sympathize. He begins to craft an elaborate tale of epic fantasy to share with her, casting his teacher in the lead role. The story soon takes on a life of its own. Dorothea is a fierce elven warrior in a kingdom on the brink of collapse, and the climax (inside and outside the story) is a compelling read.
I particularly enjoyed Peter's parts of this book. His troubled home life is something any reader can empathize with, and it was interesting seeing the problems escalate in his fantasy world as problems escalated in reality. Although the writing is somewhat unpolished, the raw quality suits the tenor of the book. The domestic conflict contrasts nicely with the traditional high fantasy setting, which (as a genre) tends to be rather grand.
At only $0.99 in the Kindle Store, Dorothea's Song is a worthwhile way to pass the weekend. But the best part is that it's available in a variety of formats: you can get it in PDF, hard copy, or download the audio book for free (!!).
