Fictional Book with Real-Life Experiences, for Tweens and Teens, Offers Chilling Cautionary Tale with a Twist

Cyber bullies, can you spot one?

    FORT WORTH, TX, April 04, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Greenlee Lynn Granger is about to find out the true meaning of technology used as a malicious tool: normal teen one day, and ruined the next. Who knew a boy's affections could turn her life into such turmoil?

Thrasher's latest novel takes an emotional glimpse into the reality of cyber bullying. Cruel betrayal of such magnitude devastates her main character, Greenlee Lynn Granger, forcing her to make mature decisions teens are often pressured to make due to such terrible acts. The main characters decisions address the outcome of her persecutors, including their punishment, and their future options. This book has the ability to bring to light issues and situation kids have today, and can help them understand the seriousness of their actions and the consequences that can occur. It can encourage and stimulate conversation about bullying and cyber bullying between parents, kids, teachers, and others in the community. If one student reads this book and it shapes the view or positively impacts the decision they make when encountered with bullying situations, than it is a success.

"The Greenlee Project is a touching and chilling cautionary tale that every teen should read. Amanda Thrasher gives us interesting and compelling characters, a well-crafted plot, and a breathless pace. Her teens are so real that you will feel you know them personally. Normal adolescent insecurity and thirst for acceptance trumps friendship and consideration, leading to a nightmare: a runaway chain of uncaring unflattering, and unmerciful photos and posts, threatens to destroy friendships, self-regard, and careers. Technology magnifies the worst instincts of the people involved, while the victims must decide how to face up to their tormentors. Teens will find 'The Greenlee Project' a compelling read and helpful guide, while adults will see the challenges today's teens face. This is a grand and important story..." - David A. Bedford, Ph.D. Instructor of Spanish at TCU
