Greetings Shelfari fam,
At last my book will be available to you starting tomorrow October 1st at AMAZON.COM
Friends, I am not pushing a book, but a message. This book is full of life lessons and inspiration wrapped in a coming-of-age series. I wrote this book especially for our young men ages 12-16 but it's a read for all tweens and teens everywhere. Parents, grand parents and anyone who has a young adult they hold dear, I encourage you to read this story together and discuss the book. I've included 10 workbook questions at the end to encourage conversation and thought.
It is my feeling that young men need other things to read other than comics, Science Fiction, and sports. Issues such as peer- pressure, sibling rivalry, family issues, puppy love, first kiss, facial hair, and so much more are briefly addressed. A dab of mystery and the main character's gift of premonition add flavor also to this series.
I have also done the synopsis in the book poetically to encourage the love of poetry in young readers. The cover is also a portrait and I will soon have info on how you can purchase it as an accessory.

A coming-of-age story for tweens & teens
Homesick for his life and friends back home, a family move forces 14 year old Clifton Henderson, aka Slip, to grow up on the north side of Chicago. In his mind, life sucks at the moment and can't get any worse. But it does.
