Fruit Machine
“Fruit Machine is a story about love, youth, arts education, and the pitfalls that go along with these things. In the blink of an eye Jason Fellows falls in love for the first time. And with this revelation comes many tricky new questions. But Jason has never been a wallflower and, naive though he is in matters of the heart, he becomes determined to win the affections, or at the very least, the attentions, of his beloved: Sheridan. However, determined not to be the object of Jason’s fantasy, Sheri rises to meet Jason’s onslaught of charm blow for blow. And so begins a clash of wills: with Jason struggling to understand truth about his feelings, and Sheri striving to bring them to a head. With their friends and classmates looking on, the two begin a social orbit of each another, one that can only result in collision.
