The BookViral Review:

Poignant and hauntingly insightful, TAP TAP SLIDE TAP follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl and a gay black male dancer who are thrown together by circumstance, not due to their love of dance, but by the cancer that ravages their bodies.

Hannah has always dreamed of dancing, but her body is too weak. When Max attends the clinic for surgery, something about her draws him. Not knowing that this connection is linked to his own childhood experiences, Max gradually transforms from a furious and bitter man and Hannah blossoms under his tutelage, as their medical fates follow widely differing trajectories.

Written with intense emotional empathy, TAP TAP SLIDE TAP delves deeply into childhood and relationship psychology, equality and discrimination, framed within a haunting and unique story of connection.

Griffin’s evident skill in revealing his story from each protagonist’s viewpoint lends realism to his work, as the reader feels the authenticity of each character, their respective relationships and their rapport.

With an interesting focus on contrasting and divergent therapies, Griffin demonstrates how one nevertheless compliments the other, slowly thawing and healing its recipients.

The magic of dance and performance weaves a captivating spell throughout, as the darker and lighter sides of life converge, echoing the miracle of physical healing.

Nevertheless, TAP TAP SLIDE TAP is not a sugar-coated, happy ever after story. With its fair share of grief and mourning, rendering the reader heartsore at times, this novel brings real life into stark relief but soothes this with the positive sentiment of memorial.

An emotional read on many levels, Griffin entwines a beautiful story with valuable intrapersonal and deep-rooted therapeutic insight.
