Look Who Dropped By: K.C. Sprayberry

Excerpt:

Thudding footsteps, a smack on the back as I’m swallowing, and
then RAS straddles the chair across from me.
“Don’t gulp. Then I won’t have to keep you from choking.” He fills
his plate with enough food to feed the back line of the Atlanta Falcons. “The
jerk used all the hot water.” RAS glares at me. “You will so pay later.”
“Yeah, right.” I stuff more pancakes, strawberries, and sausages
into my mouth.

I always pay. When will he figure out that I’m not his favorite
tackle dummy?

This is
a story that was with me for a long time, a story begging to be told more and
more each day. Many, many people have been bullied. Most of us survived and
went on to have useful lives, but we will always remember those who pushed us
around, physically and mentally.

We stood
up and walked away. The bruises weren’t always visible, but they were and are
there. We remain quiet when harsh words are spoken … walk away when others
begin conversations that make us feel uncomfortable. One and all, we dream of
the day when bullying will stop.
Some of
us are around to share our stories. Others could no longer handle what was said
or done to them. How do you stop a bully? Words? Actions? Treat them as they do
you? There is no perfect solution, yet we can never stop standing up against
these people.

Blurb:
High school means a whole new world. Yet, for Alex Starkey,
pimples, discovering one of his buds is a real girl now, and an older brother
using him as his favorite tackle dummy are tiny problems. What gets Alex’s
temper simmering are his inits. Surviving his freshman year without diving into
deep trouble seems impossible.

About mhsusannematthews

Finally retired after more than 30 years as a teacher! Now, I get to spend my time gardening, enjoying my grandchildren, and writing. I finally completed the number one item in my bucket list and Crimson Romance published my first novel, Fire Angel, in April 2013. Since then I have sold 24 other manuscripts to date and don't plan to quit writing for a long time yet.
