Life Sliding, a book and film by Woodstock’s own S.I. Maudlin will be having their charity fundraiser book signing and film trailer release party tomorrow evening at the Etowah High School Auditorium. The book was initially a screenplay that Maudlin adapted into a book after pitching it to a film agent and the agented asked if it were based on a book. Using the screenplay as an outline, Maudlin created Life Sliding, the book.
Abut Life Sliding
The book and film follow the main character, Gavin, a rising high school senior as he struggle with his status as the “most popular kid in school,” and the need to be the person he is, not who he feels he has to be because of his status. His father sends him to camp Lift Me Up, forcing Gavin into an unfamiliar world. When he and three others form and unlikely friendship and try and shake up the social order at their high school during the new school year, their plans are thwarted by a jaded person jumping to conclusions. Will they be able to survive the fallout of what they’ve put into motion? You’ll have to pick up the book or watch the film to see!
