Monster: The Story Steve Harmon, a sixteen-year-old African American teen from Harlem, is awaiting trial for his role as an accomplice in a drugstore robbery that ended in murder.  Before being imprisoned, Steve enjoyed amateur film making and while in confinement decides to write his experience in prison as a movie script.


Being Henry David When Hank wakes up in Penn Station, the only clue to his identity is the book hes clutching, Walden, so he adopts Henry David Thoreaus name and iconic work to guide him on his journey to self-discovery.After a stabbing ends his brief stint as a homeless teen, Hank flees to Walden Pond, where he meets Thomas, a gentle park docent, and bonds with a girl, gifted singer Hailey. His festering knife wound forces him to confide in Thomas and accept help, but Hank's pleasant discoveries (hes good-looking, a runner and a musician) are overshadowed by returning memories that evoke dread and shame. Whats driven him, Hank realizes, is desperation to escape his past, not to recover it.


CUT Some people think everyone that cuts is just plain crazy. Do you think they even know the reason that a person would subject to cutting? I dont think so. In her inspiring novel, Cut, Patricia McCormick tells about Callie, a soft-spoken, shy, fifteen-year-old girl. Callie is suffering with personal problems, which include her brothers deadly asthma, her parents, who are growing farther apart, and now the budding conflict in which, Callie cuts herself. She knows not to cut too deep and not cut more than one or two lines per arm, what she is dealing with is her problems or “reasons” for cutting. She has no idea why she does it until she is admitted to a mental health facility, Sea Pines.

We could really use your help!

    Please reach out to friends and neighbors. Sometimes the neighbor-to-neighbor request is the most powerful. Pleading and getting down on one knee may also work. All kidding aside, this is serious. Use your influence. We'll be making some calls to folks who have even slightly expressed an interest. Please do the same. And if some of you who have stepped away for a bit can return, that would be awesome! Thank you so Much!

We would appreciate your financial assistance
