It also shows the fun and adventure of visiting museums, and the importance of eating healthy foods for a long life. But most importantly, it shows that anything is possible if we believe in ourselves.

Aimed at children 10 and up, Jack and the Powerful Seven: The Secret Strength from Within by Trina C. Bryer may change the way kids view museums – and themselves – forever.

Jack Bean was an adventurous youngster when he and his friends make a dangerous decision at the Great Museum. Years later, Bean and his wife, Mercy, have created a loving family of seven children when his wicked sister-in-law begins to wreak havoc. The ensuing adventure leads the young Beans into a world of fantasy, intrigue and danger involving evil kings and secrets buried deep within the Nimba Mountains of Liberia. Only the power of forgiveness can extricate the kids from this world where the impossible has become possible – but can they find it in their hearts to forgive those who are so undeserving?

“Just because you’re nice to someone doesn’t mean they’ll be nice to you, so how do you deal with that? Through scenes ranging from battles to those depicting issues we face in everyday life, the story shows kids in an adventurous way how to dwell on the amazing strengths that lie within us all,” says Bryer. “It also shows the fun and adventure of visiting museums, and the importance of eating healthy foods for a long life. But most importantly, it shows that anything is possible if we believe in ourselves.”

Bryer says she purposefully set a portion of the story in Liberia so she could share the country’s history. She also included children of many ethnicities.

Jack and the Powerful Seven: The Secret Strength from Within is Bryer’s first book. She has a bachelor’s degree in psychology, sociology and women’s studies. The book is published by AuthorHouse.
