I sold drugs, I was in a gang, I went to jail, and now I want to save the world.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 30, 2009
Author Kevin "Coach" Brown's novel From Ghetto to Greatness is a masterpiece of storytelling that grabs young readers' attention from the very beginning. Once they are pulled into the protagonist's Jerome Brown's world, they are whisked away with him through many previously unglamorized ghetto situations. It's these nuances that make the plot fresh and interesting; as opposed to the trite storyline of "I sold drugs, I was in a gang, I went to jail, and now I want to save the world." The result of this brand new approach to urban youth literature is a book that is positively changing attitudes and actions of troubled teens throughout the country.
As a practicing Life Coach, Youth Sunday School Teacher and community volunteer, Brown saw a strong need to communicate with teens at their level. Somehow he was able to reach back over 30 years to recount details of his attitude and thoughts in conjunction with his experiences of growing up in Long Beach inside a tumultuous home environment. Brown encapsulated all this onto 214 pages that have an emotional rollercoaster effect on the reader. Suspense, humor, sorrow, and eventually triumph are blended to make the reader feel as though they have been taken back in time to when Lionel Richie was still with The Commodores and Cuba Gooding Sr. was the only star in his family.
Brown is working to get From Ghetto to Greatness picked up by a major publisher that will distribute the book to all the major retail outlets. He pictures himself sitting on Oprah's couch while she asked him tough questions about the unbelievable stories in the book. He believes Oprah will want to know how his book managed to change so many young folks' lives for the better. For now, those interested in getting a copy of From Ghetto to Greatness will have to catch up with the Brown at one of his book signing in Atlanta or order it from Amazon.com.
