1. You are mixing the use of present and past tenses. Stay with one or the other.
2. You need to keep working on the correct use of articles, "a" and "an" and "the."
A seventeen-year-old boy, Alex...
of the novel
in the study
on the phone
3. Subject-verb agreement: If the subject is singular, then the verb needs to be singular; plural subject, plural verb.
Alex comes ... and find ... How will you fix the error here? Make sure this doesn't happen anywhere else in your writing.
4. Watch capitalization and spaces.
5. There's a subject missing at the beginning of the last sentence, and further rephrasing is needed so you don't end up with a run-on sentence.
Make corrections and repost. Someone here will re-check for you.
