Title: The Summer I Drowned by Taylor Hale
Publisher: Wattpad Books ~ Release Date: May 26, 2020
Genre: Teens & YA ~ ISBN: 9781989365182
Five years after almost drowning, Olivia Cathart returns home to Caldwell Beach determined to face her fears and take some risks—not just by swimming, but by opening her heart. Hoping to rekindle her friendships, she’s excited about a carefree summer with her best friends Keely and Miles. But life in the sleepy town has changed, and no one and nothing is as it seems.
When a series of startling crimes threaten Olivia’s fragile state, she is plunged into a terrifying game of cat and mouse. Her only solace from the chaos is West, Miles’s disowned and ruggedly handsome brother, but even he can’t answer the question on everyone’s minds—is Olivia really in danger or is it simply all in her head?
Taylor Hale was born in Southwestern Ontario, and started writing on Wattpad in 2015. When she isn’t writing, she can be found bartending at a live music venue, and thinking up her next idea. The Summer I Drowned is her first novel.

This second is a very inspiring non-fiction by new author I hope to soon interview and learn more about - Melvin L. Jones. It is written for Young Adults and Adults, too!
The Onyx Renaissance by Melvin L. Jones
“Excellence, with no regrets”...
“Chill Will”, “Benji”, “Big Mel”, “Juice” and “Ice”. Will Appling, Owen Benjamin, Mel Jones, O.J. McDuffie, and Marcus Teague. Before the Michigan “Fab Five”, there was the “Juice Crew All-Stars” of Hawken.
In the Fall of 1985, five young men from the Cleveland area... two from Cleveland's Woodhill Park neighborhood, and three from Warrensville Heights, began their high school experience at Hawken School: a private school on the outskirts of Cleveland in Gates Mills.
In the three years they attended Hawken, the “Juice Crew” changed the way people looked at the school as a whole; athletically and socially. While at the same time, these five young men saw civic, cultural and economic differences; things they never dreamed of experiencing while living around the inner city of Cleveland. In an era where social media was relegated to newspapers, radio and television, the “Juice Crew” brought notoriety to a school that was widely considered to be... “a school for bookworms”.
“The Onyx Renaissance” chronicles the story of how these five young men came together and forged a brotherhood that allowed them to express themselves athletically and socially. Their acts had long-lasting effects on the school located in Gates Mills... effects that were still being felt today. In a phrase, the “Juice Crew” made Hawken... “Prime Time”.

Since giving up his athletic endeavors, he returned to Warrensville Heights to be an educator in the school system he grew up in.

He is the proud father of two strong-minded young ladies and a young man who is full of character and moxie.

This Third Book is an intriguing Non-fiction about Ancient wisdom for the modern world, demonstrating that 'incurable' merely means 'curable from within'. It is generously donated by John Hunt Publishing.
SynopsisWhat Maggy Whitehouse has discovered, over more than a quarter of a century of studying, teaching and writing books on Kabbalah, is that, used as a tool for inspiration, Kabbalah is a magical loom on which we can weave our healing, and from that healing, we become an agent of healing for the World. Kabbalah tells us exactly where, when, how and why we may be out of alignment with health, finances and relationships and, just as importantly, how to realign ourselves.
For Maggy, it began with chronic lack of self-esteem which, in turn, led to many a humiliation, widowhood, shark attack, failed emigration, debt, divorce, shame, misery, hatred and what the doctors called an incurable illness which now no longer exists. It can be summed up, in a way, by how the first eight aspects led to the final one and how Kabbalah taught Maggy how to heal them, from finish to start. After all, 'incurable' surely means 'curable from within'.
ABOUT the AUTHOR: Rev.
