You have a choice, what will it be?
Recently I was introduced to a new and upcoming author, Mia N. Jones, whose writing inspires me and provokes my thinking. Choices (The “Light” Designs $11.95) truly demonstrates the challenges many young people are faced with daily. Making the wrong choice due to peer pressures can cost them their lives. Choices also shows how temptations are always there. The characters may be fictional, but the message is real. I would recommend this book to parents, teachers and mentors; anyone who works with young people. Read it first, then share it with a young person to help them understand that making the right choice could save their life. This author is truly gifted, and I look forward to reading more of her work.
