The Adventures of Abigail
Independently Published, Sep 17, 2019 - 236 pages
Eighth grade isn't the usual, mysterious, and awkward transition from middle to high school for 14-year-old Abigail Brewer. A new school year has started at Robinhood Elementary School's Eighth-Grade Center, and all of Abigail's excitement quickly fades when she receives an unexpected assignment from her Speech and Language Pathologist (SLP), Ms. Plewitt. Abigail does all she can to avoid the assignment until she is surprised with a soul-stirring and tumultuous project in her Creative Performing Arts elective. It sets the stage for what Abigail calls a not so exciting adventure! Reciting poetry at the Fall Performing Arts show becomes a daunting task for Abigail due to her stuttering always stealing the show. It creates a Goliath called and devastates her! Not only does she have to deal with fear, but fiery darts come at her from every direction. A very close relative teases her at home, no one truly understands what it's like to be in her shoes, and everyone wants her to be brave and let her light shine. From whom will she seek support? She has only one friend to whom she can really talk about stuttering and be herself. Will she find an army in her Papa, a few teachers, her focus group, and some unexpected individuals to stand in the gap and help her defeat this Goliath? Will she trust the Commander in Chief of the army and rise? Sit back, fasten your seat belt, and get ready for a rhythm of events that are based on a true story as Abigail Brewer creates adventures for everyone at her school! While reading Abigail's story, we hope that you find a beautiful, adventuresome, and heroic character to whom you can relate and muster the courage to share your adventures about the Goliath(s) in your life.
