IA Initiate is a supernatural thriller set in the mean streets of America. A seemingly random act of gang violence sends "Naz" Andersen on a quest to find answers surrounding his dead parents that lead to a series of discoveries about his supernatural abilities. Naz tries to stay out of the way at his foster parent's home, but he walks in his sleep, and he is unable to keep the fact that he hears voices from his therapist. He attempts to go unnoticed at school and in the streets of the Exclave, but attracts the attention of friends and bullies alike, and his efforts to protect his little sister make him the target of malicious bullying by the notorious street gang, Incubus Apostles. Naz is an ordinary thirteen-year-old, or so he thinks. He harbors a secret that even he is oblivious to, and a series of ill-fated events reveal to him telekinetic and telepathic abilities. Now he must navigate newly found friendship and gang violence, and face the full force of the world around him. The only way he can survive is to discover the supernatural world within.
A COOHAMOOK CAME OVER FOR BREAKFAST
Lizzie Lewis hates breakfast. She'd rather eat candy and other sweet treats. But then Mama brings home a new box of cereal for Lizzie to try - magic cereal. With one bite, she finds herself shrunk down to a few inches high and enters the world of Breakfastland, where mountains are made of marshmallows and palaces are made of pancakes. There she meets the Chookamoks, tiny mouse-like creatures that help make breakfast for the whole world. Can the Chookamooks teach Lizzie that breakfast isn't so bad? And can she help save Breakfastland from the evil Dr. Darktooth?
You might find it interesting that the heroine, Lizzy Lewis, has to figure out how to deal with a bully -- and does so in a most creative way.'' -Clifford Davis
