STORY OVERVIEW

DISCOVER HOW TWO BOYS OVERCOME BULLYING AND CHANGE THEIR WORLD...

This trilogy is a character-driven epic urban adventure story with a super-heroic element. It follows Curtis Powers (protagonist - new kid) and Treyshawn Jinkins (antagonist - school bully) as they try to navigate life without their fathers. Curtis’ dad is deceased. Treyshawn’s father is in prison. Though the boys start out as enemies, they eventually become friends. It is the power of their friendship that helps them accomplish more than they ever could achieve alone. 

The three books cover their journey to manhood—as they progress from 9th grade through college—and examines what it means to overcome tragic events and tough situations in order to become a person of significance. The story has additional plot lines as Curtis and Treyshawn interact with other individuals (and antagonists) who are on their own journeys. The super-heroic element is due to the fact that Curtis is a science prodigy who uses his intellect to create a series of “PowerSuits” which inspire entire communities.

This story addresses a number of critical issues affecting our youth (and their families): school bullying, fatherlessness, conflict resolution, decision-making, skill-set development, and faith.  This trilogy has it all: drama, action, comedy, S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, arts math), mystery, romance and intrigue. You have never read anything quite like this before.

Synopsis

Part two of the story you’ve been waiting for…

Curtis and Treyshawn are two fatherless boys who struggle to navigate the world. Curtis seeks to build on the life lessons his father taught him. Treyshawn seeks to break down the walls his father put between them. As these boys transition into manhood, how will they survive?

At the start of ninth grade, Treyshawn bullied Curtis relentlessly! But, this motivated Curtis to create a hi-tech plan. With the help of his family, his best friend Kelly and others, that plan did more than anyone thought possible and changed everyone’s lives forever! In the process, the boys settled their differences and forged a friendship to help each other overcome the obstacles they faced. Their friendship led to the creation of the Mach-1 Speedsuit and earned them worldwide recognition.

Now, Curtis, Treyshawn and Kelly are on a new adventure to further pursue their dreams: college. Their future seems sure, but they soon learn that opportunity often comes with opposition. The pressures they encounter cause them to question everything: Is Curtis fast enough to stop tragic events? Does Treyshawn really have his life under control? Will Kelly’s growing love for Curtis be challenged by his increasing fame?

As the answers to these questions unfold, Curtis, Treyshawn and Kelly discover: ‘When everyone isn’t for you, you still must press toward your destiny.’

Synopsis

Every story that has a beginning... has an end.

Book Two closes on a cliffhanger: Curtis has been abducted. Treyshawn discovers why his father doesn't want him. Kelly attempts to help her roommate make a life-changing decision. Omar is injured. Gavin almost dies. And Miranda's quest for the truth has made her a target.

Now, in Book Three, things will go from bad to worse as Team Speedsuit tries to run towards a resolution:

After helping to rescue his young protege, Chasm Montgomery continues to remake Curtis in his own image. But will the "new" Curtis Powers sit well with his family and friends? And what is Chasm's motivation behind his generosity?

Meanwhile, Treyshawn is finding his place in college, but will his attempts to build a relationship with his father cause more harm than good?

And just who is the man in the undisclosed location? What nefarious plans would cause him to unleash a threat which could destroy Curtis and those closest to him?

All of these questions and more will be answered in this climactic conclusion where Curtis, Treyshawn and Kelly uncover the greatest revelation of all: One person's choice can affect the destiny of many.
