It was a great year, that year Charlie went to high school in the Denver area. He had a turn at playing football for a legendary coach, and he made very, very good friends with a beautiful cheerleader. He had an extraordinary English teacher and got one of his stories made into a play, which was performed. He made many good friends, but he encountered unexpected problems.
The football coach was abusive, and he did not like the English teacher. The cheerleader and her family were loyal to the football coach, while Charlie preferred his English teacher, and divisions grew into wide chasms.
This is the second of a series of short novels, based on the adventures of a “military brat”, Elmo Reginald Burfoot II, nicknamed: Charlie Cliché’. He is a boy who has to travel with his parents all over the world and has had to learn how to fit in at new schools without being bullied or ridiculed for his birth name. The best method he has found is to become a storyteller.
The author says: “The purpose of the novel is to encourage boys and girls, from upper elementary grades through high school, to read. There is also a thread of values that runs through all my books. They deal with acceptance, tolerance, and open-mindedness, on many levels.”
