Beyond The Blue -- Free today in the Kindle Store
BEYOND THE BLUE is a coming of age novella. 12 year old Anthony Breckenheimer is a clever boy with blue eyes, red hair and like his father he is a little on the chubby side. He lives in the big City of Toronto with his mother, his little brother Ronald and his little sister Leona. His father died a year ago and Anthony misses him greatly especially when he is confronted by bullies on his way to and from school; the biggest and baddest one being Jerry Hasselbergen. One day while in his classroom Anthony discovers a magical window. What he sees through this window and beyond the blue changes his life forever.
BEYOND THE BLUE is a story that takes place in a Toronto neighbourhood way back in the 1950's. I actually remember those days well. Bullying was a problem then as it is today although to a lesser degree in that in those days it was rare that weapons be used or that drugs be involved. Yes, it was more innocent but make no mistake, for the child being bullied it was a harrowing experience. "Enigami" is the message beyond the blue but what on earth can that possibly mean? This coming-of-age story is one I believe many young children will find believable and inspiring. I hope you will enjoy it too.
