One Love by Deanna Cabinian is not a coming-of-age novel (IMHO). The coming-of-age novel is One Night also by Deanna Cabinian. The latter takes place in high school; One Love takes place in the university. While we can argue about the maturity of some university student actions, I want to point out that by now the characters are “of-age,” so let’s get on with taking on more responsibility. However, I was delighted to read more adventurous experiences of Hunter Lake. He still had the good sense to ask for advice from his mentor, Elvis. Admittedly, some may argue about the maturity of Johnny, an older mentor, who makes his living as an Elvis impersonator but for Johnny, impersonation is his business.
