WetMatches/RandyCamp
RCstories: Stories By Randy Camp

Five homeless teens (all HIV positive) in rural Virginia get a second chance at a better life when a couple on a high school reunion trip takes them on a cross-country journey to their new home in sunny California.

"Wet Matches: A Novel" is a very uplifting story about friendship and the length we are sometimes willing to go for a friend. What Crystal did for Jalan will inspire us all to take a closer look at our own relationships and friendships. While on a high school reunion trip to rural Virginia,  Jack and Crystal meets a colorful group of homeless teens (all HIV positive)  and decides to give them a second chance at a better life by taking them on a cross-country trip and  providing them with a fresh start in sunny California. People called them useless...worthless...about as good as wet matches! Meet Shelly, Robbie, Josie, Micky and Cole...five lively teens who still laugh when death may possibly be lurking around the corner. As others called them worthless, Jalan, Crystal and Jack thought otherwise. "WET MATCHES" is a Quarter-Finals Prize Winner of The Writers Network 14th Annual Screenplay & Fiction Competition. Without being preachy-but-entertaining, 'WET MATCHES: A NOVEL' takes a fresh contemporary look at America's ever-increasing youth runaway and teen homeless problems. Look for the print edition or ebook version on Amazon in December 2011.

Excerpt
It seems that those who reach down and pull others out of the well, most often, are the ones who've been down in the well themselves...Pleadingly, Crystal explains, "Jack, how can we go back to that big empty house knowing that these kids got no place to call home?"Wet Matches: A Novel" is an inspiring and uplifting story about five homeless 'throwaway' teens (all HIV positive) getting a second chance at a better life when a young couple on a high school reunion trip rescues them and takes them on a cross-country journey to their new home in sunny California. 'Wet Matches' is about friendships, and it asks the question, "How far would you go for a friend?" Fifteen years of separation didn't stop Crystal from being there for Jalan. What Crystal did for Jalan will inspire us all to take a closer look at our own relationships and friendships...Could you still laugh knowing that death was possibly lurking around the corner? Meet five free-spirited teens: Shelly, Robbie, Josie, Micky and Cole, who will inspire you to enjoy every second of your life. Shelly is pregnant. Robbie plays guitar. Josie's a little confused. Micky likes cars. Cole's a little shy. Some people called them useless. They were told to get out of town. Some people said that they were about as good as wet matches...but Jalan, Crystal and Jack thought otherwise. If you had ever been ridiculed, bullied, mocked...or if someone had ever made you feel like you was good for nothing or worthless then Randolph Randy Camp's award-winning 'Wet Matches: A Novel' is a story for you. Without being preachy-but yet-entertaining, 'Wet Matches' takes a fresh contemporary look at America's ever-increasing youth runaway and teen homeless problems. 'WET MATCHES' is a Quarter-Finals Winner of The Writers Network 14th Annual Screenplay and Fiction Competition.
