Larry was one of those characters I found a little intimidating to work with. He’s the younger son of Ian, the leading man in The Reunion. Larry is first introduced as an angry seventeen-year-old, bitter over his parents’ divorce. He’s been told, many times, that they went their separate ways because they were unhappy together, however, Larry doesn’t see it that way. Deep down, he thinks they broke up because he was a bad kid–a fairly common occurrence with children of divorce. His mission is to thwart his parents’ new relationships, and Gillian, the leading lady, is in his cross hairs.

When Larry isn’t trying to sabotage his parents’ happiness he’s a typical high school senior. He makes good grades, he has a good circle of friends, and, after graduation, he plans on attending culinary school and becoming a chef. Unfortunately, teenagers have a knack for getting themselves into trouble, and Larry is certainly no exception. Trouble will come his way when he lies to his father and sneaks out to a drinking party in the woods.

Larry is a fictitious character and not inspired by anyone in particular that I’ve known. However, as the story progresses, circumstances force him to change his attitude, and by the time he appears in the The Journey, he will have matured into a remarkable young man.
