Everyone has their own way of dealing with loneliness and rejection. Some may see it as an impetus to improve while others accept it feeling a door has closed in their face. Familiar with the ways people deal with illness and injuries that usually bring disappointment, frustration and loneliness, author Judith Tanielian shares the story behind “The Perez Legacy: Redemption” (published by Xlibris).

Eduardo Rodriguez, a 14-year-old Mexican boy, is sent by his ailing grandfather to live in California with adult cousins who resent his intrusion on their already difficult lives. Ignored and lonely, Eduardo finds friendship and acceptance in a gang and is soon delivering drugs for them. Though he tries to ignore his conscience, he cannot forget the values taught by his grandfather. Following a terrifying act of vandalism, the injured Eduardo finds himself as the ward of a prominent local school psychologist, Philip Perez, a man who has learned to persevere in the face of his own personal tragedy. A story of the powerful changes that can occur when people open their hearts to one another; this tale follows Eduardo as he struggles to overcome rejection, loneliness and find redemption with the help of the strict Dr. Perez.

Transcending boundaries of culture and age, this novel shows how love for one person can save him from the depths of darkness he or she has fallen into. Using Dr. Perez’s character as the guardian and mentor young Eduardo needs in his life, Tanielian highlights the importance of parental guidance and quality time between parents and their children. Emotionally appealing, “The Perez Legacy: Redemption” is more than just a story. It is Tanielian’s advocacy to bring parents and their children closer in order to prevent teenagers from slipping into the dark.
