This book tells a warm and captivating story about teenagers seeking their way in life with each other and the adult world.

During this search they enter the space and time of extraterrestrials to assist in resolving the problems of Earth.
“Writing fiction is about letting your mind flow, while building a picture of greatness in characters,” says Lockard. His book, “Circles in Circles,” looks into the continuing struggle of young people to withstand temptations from society while being able to cross hurdles in life with success in hopes of uplifting readers with strong character building that should help them understand the value of increasing self-confidence and self esteem.
