A Portrait for Toni



A Portrait for Toni Toni has no idea what she d do without her best friend, Carter Who else would she be able to vent to about her parents, her job at the dance studio, or her latest relationship woes When Toni s father lands in the hospital, Carter, as always, is there for her.That is, until he starts questioning Toni, saying he thinks she has an eating disorder Then she starts dating Clint, the hot new guy at the studio, and somehow that puts a deeper wedge between her and Carter When she s hospitalized after an on stage collapse, and Carter stupidly starts in with advice about food and weight, she sends him away then instantly regrets it.One night after a performance, Toni tries to mend the hurt between them She goes to visit Carter at work, in his art classroom at the high school She doesn t see him there, and instead, she stumbles onto proof that he has feelings for her that go way beyond those of a friend Toni is left with the very real prospect of losing Carter forever, unless somehow she can return his feelings but that s impossible.Isn t it Read A Portrait for Toni – heartforum.co.uk

    Writing a believable love story while attacking hard subjects such as eating disorders is a tall order to tackle Read full review in the November 2013 issue of InD tale Magazine.
