Carry On - Cam   Kennedy Incredible potential in this dystopian tale.The evocative emotions Kelsey engenders is powerful, but the writing style blunts the full effect. The reportage style provides a distance between the reader and the story that I want ripped down. This is a harsh and compelling plot that needs to be in-your-face. Presently, it reads more like a full outline with a few scenes flushed out which I would love to read as a complete one with another 50K words. This event (Love Has No Boundaries) has a definite timeframe for completion and I think that it impeded it. This is a great start to an intense and gritty futuristic tale, but the characters and the plot both need more time to develop and unravel to be fully explored and appreciated.
