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!





Life After High School: Traits that Help & Traits that Hurt

This book is only for those who want to succeed.

However, regardless of the issues, what is important is the decisions that you make, and the path that you take, immediately after leaving high school.
