Small Town Girl Needs to Get Away and Inadvertently Learns More About Herself

It is a story shared by many a teenager hailing from a small community. Finding the familiar, dull and predictable rhythms of small town life asphyxiating, it makes one want to break free and set out on their own, aiming to make a dent in the world’s hard shell. Whirlwind is a work of fiction by author Jessica L. Wyant, the first of her compositions released through Xlibris.

Seventeen-year-old Alex Peaks is a pessimistic realist, who is ready to get out of high school and away from her small town, away from the people she despises. That is until she’s forced to work her first summer, forcing her away from her home, and foreseeing the worst time of her life approaching.

Or is it?

After meeting a guy and becoming great friends, she still finds that she’s looking for more, never realizing how much she needs people, how much she wants hope, and how much she never knew of love. In this one summer, she learns more about herself than she ever thought there even ever was. Learning that who a person is what makes that single person great. Before realizing a person can love another, they must first love themselves.

This book will be featured at the 2011 American Association of School Librarians Book Exhibit in Minneapolis, MN, on October 26 to 30, 2011.
