Dropped in the city, deposited like so much discarded trash and forbidden to return home, Jackie is forced to live on the streets. His only hope for survival is Solo, a young man who takes Jackie under his wing. Their friendship, and possibly more, develops over the weeks that follow, until Solo inexplicably disappears
Reviewer: Cat
Review: Jackie has been dropped off in the city with nothing but the clothes on his back. He has led a very sheltered life until now and is forced to try to fend for himself in a city he never had been to before. Solo is living off the grid and likes to be alone hence the name.
This is a very sweet story of two boys trying to make a living. It’s a tough world and Jackie wants to try to live right. This is a very bittersweet story and I felt beautifully written. Once I started I couldn’t stop. Unlike a lot of really short stories it didn’t feel rushed and the ending was very good. I loved it.
Recommendations: If you like a story of a person down and out, trying to live off the grid, sad stories with a pretty happy ending, and young love, this is  for you.
