― Marilyn Monroe

Myra decides to follow Zoe her childhood friend to this prestigious all-girls school and their close childhood bond makes them a formidable pair.

Nola is a mildly geeky girl with dreams for a good career break. Hampton can make them happen. She wants to make her parents proud and so she refuses to allow Zoe and her posse to pervert her.
Zoe and her renegades are a raunchy bunch never seen in this school’s history. So, no-nonsense principal, Lenora Mustafa has her hands full this year as she strives to maintain the school’s enviable reputation.
It’s final year at the Hampton School, a prestigious all-girls boarding school in Jamaica where parents send their daughters to become ladies; but some girls allow their raging hormones to turn them into renegades. Everyone is different in this sisterhood, but they all share a common goal to graduate at the end of this school year. How will it go?

Welcome to final year!

TJ (Taj James) an 18 year old high school basketball star wants to make this summer his best ever, before he leaves to take up his college basketball scholarship, but he needs help. So, he rolls the dice and calls on his 55 year old Uncle Peter, a womanizer par excellence, to help him with those plans. TJ holds secrets for Uncle Peter so TJ was very sure his uncle would do anything for him, as his uncle's promises seemed more sacred than wedding vows. As summer rolled along TJ is forced to make decisions whether to be a good boy or to practice some of the lessons his uncle is teaching him. Was it worth it when summer ended? That will depend on whose side you are on.

About Feelings

FOR that moment you cannot put in words of your own, or that memory you need to define but just don’t know how. Maybe it’s a sentiment that you need to express, but your pen has run out of ink.

You’ll never know when you will want to express that thought. It may be for a lover or just a good friend. Perhaps it is an experience that is always in your mind.

In fact, you may not even know what you’re feeling as you may be confused. You may just be short on words. No need to panic as you can find that special lyric right here in Feelings.

The poems in this collection complement express that feeling that’s within, that thought lurking deep inside. Feelings is exactly what it is, expressions from deep within, words you will want to read over and over again. It’s a treasury of thoughts, feelings, and expressions of love, joy, sadness, and sweet memories.
