Anyhow, today I'm gong to share a sample of my Young Adult, Shortcomings, which was released through Muse it Up Publishing and can be found in the Amazon select program. I wrote the story specifically because I have an autistic grandson, and how people treat him and how he views himself is so important to me. If I can help one person view someone's differences and embrace another human with dignity and kindness, then I will have accomplished what I set out to do. Hopefully, this will tempt you enough to want to read or share a copy. Although geared for YA, it's suitable reading for all and packs a message we can all benefit from.
Our shortcomings don't define who we are, unless we let them. Cindy Johnson needs to learn that. Born with one leg shorter than the other, she has no self-esteem because of the cruel comments and cold stares she receives from her classmates. When Cory Neil, the football quarterback asks her to Homecoming, she's quite sure he's asked her on a dare and refuses. It takes more than just her mother's assurances that Cindy's beautiful before she realizes she may have made a mistake in turning him down.
See you next week...unless I forget!
