Isn't hope in some form our best case scenario?
More than a year our of college, Nyra’s beginning to wonder when her life gets started. Was it like this for her mother? Nyra doubts it, but things were different, back then. Her reality is nothing like her mother’s.
Nyra gets that every generation faces its own challenges and she’s smart enough to know it’s on her to overcome them. That’s why she’s worked two jobs all through college, studied so hard and tried not to worry too much about her mounting student loan debt.
Still, this feeling of wading through wet cement is getting old. Buried somewhere deep in the half-formed jumble of dreams for her future, Nyra hears the siren’s song of hope whispering to her. She so ready. But is the song she hears really hope or just hopeful illusion?
Best Case Scenario is the first act in the series following Nyra’s journey from young woman with more questions than answers to a thoughtful woman of growing sophistication, full of purpose and promise.
What reviewers are saying about Best Case Scenario...
A marvelous story from Mr. Sayers. Told from the perspective of a woman at a pivotal point in her life, ‘Best Case Scenario’ carefully expresses the pains of a certain generation through the eyes of one character who is all at once heartbroken, in love, juggling family with other relationships, and above all else, dealing with the future’s uncertainty. Worth a read (or two). Five Stars. (CM)
Dirk Sayers’ latest novel is a prime read, and a prime example of why honesty in fiction is so compelling. Best Case Scenario is entertaining, emotional, and thought provoking. Sayers’ wisdom, life experience, and unique perspective, shine through effortless prose to show the realities and struggles of those growing up in this complex, modern era–and in a way that anyone with a pulse can relate.I am definitely looking forward to Act 2 ! Five Stars. (BF)
