DORCHESTER, Mass. – Revealing actual conditions and common realities prevalent among teenage immigrants in the US, author P. Seck releases "The Inducements of Brazen Lovers Behind the Mask," (published by Xlibris) a biographic nonfiction largely based on her own coming-of-age experiences in the land of the free.

"The Inducements of Brazen Lovers Behind the Mask" follows the life of a girl, a native of Guinea, Conakry, West Africa, who immigrates to the U.S. Full of hope and in soaring spirits, she wonders about all the beautiful things that could happen to her in this huge, foreign land. But little did she know that dreams could melt into nightmares. Culture shock shook her innocent mind, threatening to devour the hopes of a happy life. As she started school, she began to struggle with adapting the new ways of the majority, finding her hue in the monochrome of white skins and spiteful stares. She began to lose confidence and started to search for approval and acceptance. Everything came down collapsing when her little heart fell in love, only to realize that to him, she was as good as invisible.

Drawing intense emotions from her own pains, Seck's biographic fiction aims to touch hearts and raise social awareness through her story. Her book captures themes of racial prejudice and the painful pursuit for identity in a society that imposes conformity to the dominant culture. With conviction, she concludes with a plea for young adults like her, to assert and appreciate their uniqueness. She calls for social respect to multiculturalism and diversity. Ultimately, she encourages parents to reach out to their children. "Teens," she says, "need love more than anything."
