Suse Wilcox Releases 'Bullies, Coasters, Hermits, and Heroes'
by BWW News Desk - Jan 18, 2017

Everyday Heroes and Random Kindnesses Sarah and Jamie have adventure-filled, fun plans for their summer; but when Sarah's newspaper delivery job leads her to encounter those from different socioeconomic classes, she comes to realize that 'weird' people and those who don't fit into her family's world have their own real lives, concerns, and personas, and she begins to learn about the hidden 'heroes' in everyday life. Both kids become more aware of the different choices involved in interacting with others, discovering that heroes needn't be dramatic and quiet acts of kindness can easily become simple ways of reacting to life. When was the last time your 'tween' empathized with a stranger's plight? The middle school years are a Prime Time when pre-teens begin to form values and perceptions about life, learning how to perceive and interpret the feelings and actions of others; but parents and children are seldom given concrete tools to discuss bullying, friendships, and larger social issues. 'Bullies, Coasters, Hermits and Heroes' presents a rare set of insights that parents and tweens can use as openers to meaningful, thought-provoking dialogue. Too many middle school novels focus on shallow interactions and action stories. 'Bullies, Coasters, Hermits and Heroes' adds depth by asking some hard questions about different kinds of people and the choices they make with what life presents them: 'Some appeared to have no desire to change their situation. They didn't even take care of what they had. Their trailers were dirty and messy. How could they fulfill their purpose if they didn't strive for something else? Did something happen to break their spirit, or were they born as coasters?' About the Author Suse Wilcox lives in Michigan with her husband and two sons. She has and MBA from the University of Michigan and worked in the field of finance before pursuing her passion to write. She hopes to motivate children and young adults to read books that are entertaining but also have thought-provoking messages regarding life, personal choices, and faith. Bullies, Coasters, Hermits, and Heroes 116 Pages Softcover, $5.99; ISBN: 978-1508896548 E-book, $2.99 Published by: Joie Press LLC Available on Amazon Accolades and Awards 'Suse's book is directed to the reading audience from grades 4 - 7, though stories merit the attention of the adults close to these readers also...Sophisticated language yet entirely accessible to young readers...It is particularly rewarding to encounter a writer of young people's literature who is so adept at expression and incorporates sound living lessons into personal growth.'
