It’s time to meet the characters from The Summer Between. Introducing Brendon Murphy. A very recent high school graduate, Brendon is set to attend a local university in the fall. He’s a good student, makes good grades. He’s outgoing, but he has a close knit group of friends. Brendon is big on music, and there’s not much music he doesn’t like. He even dabbles in writing his own music. Brendon enjoys the outdoors, and he has a slight obsession with calendars. At 18, he’s over confident, even if he’s not sure what he wants to do with the rest of his life. (Despite this confidence, he wears his heart and his emotions on his sleeves.) Brendon knows one thing for certain, though, he will not be like his older brother Derrick.
The Summer Between is told from Brendon’s point of view. It is his summer break, after all. But a break from what? High school? Yeah, it’s a permanent break from high school.
Brendon is sure his break will be filled with all of his favorite things.
Unfortunately, we don’t always get what we want. Sometimes the summer of our dreams turns into the summer of our nightmares and all we’re left with are . . .
How Brendon survives the summer will determine the type of person he really is.
