    Life lessons for a young boy

    A simpler way to teach students the US Constitution

    Critically acclaimed, "The Battle for Tomorrow," by Dr. Stuart Jeanne Bramhall, represents a new genre of topical realism that speaks to the emotional ghetto in which many American teenagers find themselves. It resonates with the growing despair of unemployed youth facing permanent joblessness and exclusion from the American economy and mainstream life. Yet it also offers a ray of hope, in the form of social and political empowerment. Set in late 2010, the novel foreshadows the massive social upheaval that will result in the nationwide Occupy Wall Street movement.

    While at her cousin's birthday party, young D.C. meets Rob. They have a great time and promise to meet again over the summer, but a father's untimely death and a mother's miscarriage keep them apart. Reunited at school, smart-alecky D.C. and introspective Rob slowly form a bond, as they share time, adventures and sporting activities together; they also share thoughts about the workings of the mind and nature, and observations about the quirky qualities of certain members of their own families. When tragedy strikes again, they try to come to terms with what it leaves behind, struggling to accept the uncompromising, one-directional nature of time. By the end of "Island Eyes, Island Skies," by author Richard Levine, both D.C. and Rob come to believe in the future and the second chances it will bring.

    Chaos comes to Myrridia's immediate neighbors when the King of Esterlyn passes away after a long illness and the 2-year-old King of Wyckendom is murdered in his cradle, on the same day. The heir to Esterlyn, 12-year-old Frederich DiStephane, is abducted as his uncle prepares to usurp the throne, while an unexpected heir to Wyckendom, Kathaine Severinson, appears at that royal castle. In the midst of these events, Frederich's young friends mount a search party, uncaring of the potential dangers to themselves, and traverse the length of Myrridia in pursuit. In "Kingdom in the Balance," by author Debra Killeen, shadows of past events continue to threaten teh present and new Magical talents arise as those with power in Myrridia work to rescue Frederich and aid him in claiming his inheritance.
