A touching story how a support block for children will lead these kids to have a straight path in life and a stable environment to live in.

E. Davis-Banks grew up in a neighborhood where everyone knew each other and looked out for each other. For her, that provided stability and a safe environment not only for her but for her neighbors and fellow kids at that time. With the passion to awaken in most urban neighborhoods the good rapport and support system she grew up with, she writes “My Street, My Friends” (published by AuthorHouse), a touching story how a support block for children will lead these kids to have a straight path in life and a stable environment to live in.

This is a story about how neighbors support the children while they are preparing for a scooter competition that is being held at the neighborhood community center. Through the lives of four children - Dee, Robert, Helen and Lance who grew up together on the same street – readers will see a story of resilience. Their interactions highlight how their neighborhood plays an important role in their lives and their families’ lives.

With her experiences as a kid and a social worker as an adult, the author is able to effectively point out that with sound, stable and safe neighborhoods, there are no rooms for trouble. If everyone knows everyone on their block, and the children are known by all, it helps develop a better community.

“I am hoping this bright story will appeal to those who live in neighborhoods in the inner city,” Davis-Banks says. “And I am hoping reading this will make all ages think about improving relationships with neighbors on their block. To see stable neighborhoods means seeing safe and stable environments.”
