I perused this book over the weekend. It’s another exciting book by the new author Rachel Hightower. It’s much like her first novel. She knows to dig deeper than the surface of current events and give the root cause of them.
I am allowed to post the prologue and a small part of the first chapter. This is a first draft. It hasn’t been edited yet.
Why are they happening?
Why has they become an epidemic?
First of all, I would like to thank you for taking notice of my book. Selecting it for a read. But I’m going to candid. If you are reading it for quick solutions without social changes. Then I suggest you stop right now. That’s not what this book is about.
If you are one of those people whom every truth offends. Again, I suggest you stop reading because I’m not writing this to pacify adults but to try and save our children. Too many are dying at the hands of each other and guns. I wrote this to dig deeper into the psyche to see what I could come up with. I’m seeking a reason as to why these terrible things are happening? Everywhere I searched I came back to the same conclusion and these are my conclusions. And like I said, I write brutal. I do not write bathetic literary works.
Anyone familiar with my writing knows I’m forthright and do not edulcorate what I have to say. I feels that’s part of the problems. Too many people aren’t facing the problems. Everyone is pussyfooting around the subject while we all await the next group of children to die. Sugar coating things is not the adult nor effective way to deal with things when people are dying. Everyone is still sticking their heads in the prodigal sand pretending they do not know what’s going on.
What prompt me to write this book was I’m tired of seeing brokenhearted parents wailing and children crying and scared out of their young minds. The processions of funerals are way too long and has been too long for far too long.
