Some people attack life. Others defend themselves from it.

It can be a great advantage to start with nothing.

In the new Young Adult book series by R. L. Rhyse published by Wyston Books, Inc., thirteen year old Margaret battles poverty, her school principal, and a determined murderer in the richest town in America.

As Margaret's unwanted menstrual celebration party approaches she seems a typical seventh grader of a fourth generation Mormon family. Except that her innocent boyfriend is facing jail, her girlfriend is sleeping with the notorious art teacher, Mr. Cylinder, and she fears that the next body which the police discover will be hers.

But Margaret has allies too: wealthy respectable Aunt Lena, who had been expelled from high school for selling marijuana; a disabled lawyer, her father; the Orisha God, Babaluaiye, her husband; and thirteen year old Randy who is the love of her life.

Within an entertaining fictional framework, the Margaret of Greenwich (TM) series of books explores adolescent conflict with parents, teachers, and peers. The crucial issues of autonomy, friendship, education, and sexuality with which teenagers struggle while creating their own unique identity.
