Jennifer Bannan makes her debut with Inventing Victor. An ecclectic collection of tales that range from forbidden love affairs to playing make believe, this book’s composition does not disappoint. Filled with true to life situations, characters such as a homosexual man who falls in love with a married man and an abusive and elusive imaginary boyfriend, bring to life stories from every reader’s walk of life.

Meet Victor, a college kid with an excess of cash and anger. He spends money on his high school girlfriend; evidently abusing her when she gets mouthy. But no one has ever seen Victor….or have they? That’s what Ms. Bannan asks of the readers. This is just one of many forks in the road in this anthology and there is an adrenaline rush behind every twist. I highly recommend this new writer and look forward to a novel to follow in the future.

Rating: 4/5
