"Dancing In The Arms Of Orion" 
By: Stephen R. Moore 
Review By: Joe Wright / Mountman

    Stephen R. Moore’s debut novel, “Dancing in the Arms of Orion”, is the story of Daniel Peterson’s trials and tribulations of coming out in his senior year of high school. Not only does Daniel have to deal with coming out, he has to do it in a new environment. You see, Daniel and his family have moved to a new town between his junior and senior year. First he meets Cristal, who lives in the same cul-de-sac in the subdivision, Whaler’s Cove. Cristal is an out going senior who makes friends as easy as some people make their beds. Cristal introduces Daniel to all her gang of friends. Including Phillip, another senior that works at the recreational 

center, as a lifeguard. Daniel first sees Phillip, on his tour of the Rec center. Right away, when Daniel sees Phillip, he is enthralled. But, when Cristal introduces them, Phillip seems to be a real twit. You see Phillip and Cristal used to date and Daniel is blind to these facts. When Phillip tells Daniel that he broke up with Cristal because he couldn’t love her the way that she deserves to be loved, Daniel doesn’t get the hint.

     “Dancing in the Arms of Orion” is not just a coming out story. It’s the story of a group of High School seniors and their last year of school. There’s the prom, swim meets, classes, and decisions on where to go to college. All the characters are three dimensional and believable.

     As with a lot of the books that I read and review, I would like to read more of the Whaler’s Cove gang as they go off to college and enter adult hood. I would definitely recommend “Dancing in the Arms of Orion” to all.
