Author B. Alexander returns to the literary world with his new book, “Boy Scout!” (published by Xlibris). This coming of age novel, especially directed towards young people, highlights the benefits of scouting as a bringer of positive reinforcement during the teens’ transition to adulthood.

Readers are introduced to three young people who have a special bond from their participation in scouting. Scouting sets these teens on the right track and offers some incredible experiences, including hiking and camping. It provides leadership opportunities to other members of the troop and they appear to be set to tackle life’s challenges. Unfortunately, as the teens grow to be young adults, the negative influences of their environments prove to be too much. Drugs, alcohol, violence and the sheer will to survive overtake them. The morals from their youth experiences in scouting remain, but in the end, the challenges of the environment can prove to be too much.

Inspired by his own life experiences and the way he has seen the impact adults can have over their teen’s lives, Alexander has penned a tale that introduces a unique way for teenagers to learn to cope with the world’s many challenges. The characters’ development through their scouting escapades provide a smooth transition to the difficulties they will face in their transitional stage.

Alexander shares that his vision and his passion injected within his new literary offer provide readers with a good read propelled by thought-provoking plot and relatable characters. “The reader will first be intrigued by their scouting experiences but then be amazed at how they transition through life experiences,” he says.
