Rosenfeld weaves his story in much the same way our mind works, with perspectives that swing back and forth among the future, present and past as well as the real and imagined.

How do we know who is our one true love?

It’s a question that consumes the minds of many young people, and Alex Rosenfeld hopes his experiences will help others find – and keep – love. The 19-year-old’s debut novel, “REmembering BECCA” (published by AuthorHouse), shares the innermost hopes, fears, dreams and desires of a young protagonist seeking the love he lost. But has he really met her yet?

Rosenfeld weaves his story in much the same way our mind works, with perspectives that swing back and forth among the future, present and past as well as the real and imagined. Along the journey, the protagonist and the author learn more about themselves than either ever imagined possible.

“REmembering BECCA” was just awarded runner-up status at the Los Angeles Times Book Festival for 2011-2012. (http://www.losangelesbookfestival.com/)

The novel arose out of a short-story assignment in high school; he is now a creative writing major at Emory. Rosenfeld has been influenced by a number of modern writers, and notably, the time disparity in his novel was inspired by the work of another Jewish writer, Audrey Niffenegger, who wrote “The Time Traveler’s Wife.”

“REmembering BECCA” is available online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
