Throwing children of different races together will not automatically foster friendships and deep connections. It takes effort to create multiculturalism awareness. This teen novel helps to initiate discussions on diversity, stereotyping and privilege. Same age, same height, same grade—they could have been identical twins, but they were not. Yet they lived in the same imperfect world with overwhelming family problems. Greg’s father had walked out after striking his mother. Steve’s father refused to leave after repeatedly abusing his mother. Each boy, in his own way, was begging for help. They lived in different homes. They had different personalities.  One was black and the other was white and they had switched!

 

The Intruders

What does a black, a Chinese, an Italian and a Puerto Rican Bronx teen have in common?—A thirst for excitement! They get their adventure and more when they set out to explore a cave in their neighborhood.

 

After falling down a ledge, the teens find that they have time-travelled three centuries into the future–in the middle of a war between tribes. Fortunately, one tribe accepts them.

 

The teenagers soon find that they have a unique and thrilling advantage in the conflict. They know the land, and the tribes, who had lost most modern technology, do not. Unfortunately, within weeks, their adventure became too real as both friends and enemies are getting killed! This is no longer fun. This is war!

Reviews

"An intriguing story of adventure, recommended. It's all fun and games until you realize the reality of it. The Intruders tells the story of six Bronx teens flung into a future war where they use their knowledge of the subways to win a war where the surface of the Bronx has once again become a forest. Initially enjoying their new found importance, they soon realize war is no game."

-Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI USA)

 

The Intruders is a fascinating, thought-provoking, teen novel. All the obvious issues are addressed, and there’s a powerful longing for peace and acceptance beautifully portrayed. Dialog is convincing, relationships very true-to-life, emotions mixed and genuine, and the story’s intriguing and fun.

 

-Sheila Deeth, The Writers Network

 

Before I started reading this book, I thought that it was only for middle school or high school aged boy. The plot, based on a young urban teen would be enough to draw any boy that age in. Right away your are thrown into the adventure, and caught a little off guard by the details of the story. Every page has a new surprise but the part I loved best was the heartfelt moment where the main character struggles with showing his true emotions and being a leader to his peers. That was when I realized that this book is suitable for any age, as it reflects all of our inner struggles in everyday life. A great read!

-Antonia, Amazon.com

 

I am going to be 60 and I loved The Intruders. Are you planning a sequel? I was a psychology major with a concentration in children’s' literature and I love teen books. I really enjoyed this book.

Synopsis

"We can't live here," Angela wailed.

 

Hamid looked around. "We could try the cave one more time. We're... What's that?"

 

From the woods came the sounds of yapping and snarling. A dogfight? Here?

 

"Where's Club?" Hamid looked around frantically. "Club!" he called before rushing off in the direction of the snarling.

 

It was a small, rocky clearing only a few feet away and Club was in the middle of a vicious fight with a coyote. They watched helplessly as the coyote tried to bite out a chunk of Club's neck. His collar saved him. The coyote's teeth slipped off harmlessly, and the two animals lunged at each other again.

 

Derrick grabbed a stout stick and ran forward. He began hammering away at the coyote's head. With vicious fury the coyote turned to confront this new attacker. Derrick backed up in surprise but the animal took aim at Derrick's neck— actually knocking him over— before Club attacked again, this time from behind. Club's teeth sank into the coyote's neck. The two animals were now locked together and Club had the upper hand!

 

The incident had happened so fast, the others were still standing in shock. But when Derrick went after the coyote again—stick in hand—Hamid screamed at him.

 

"Derrick! Leave them! Are you crazy?"Read More...
