Meet newly published author Amy Snook. “I have many stories to write, but I wanted my first story to be about this subject. Being the new kid at school is difficult for any child. Imagine how difficult it is to be accepted if you are a refugee from another country,” says Snook. With over six years of experience teaching English as a second language, Snook has developed a deep respect for students who are trying to fit in at school while learning English.
Snook introduces her new book, "The Green Eraser" a young adult novel addressing relevant issues such as immigration and prejudice and resonates with every student’s desire to belong.
Set in contemporary small-town America, "The Green Eraser" is fast-paced. Everyone knows that being the new kid at school is a bummer. What if the new kid is from Burma, doesn’t speak English, and almost kills the writing teacher? New kid drama reaches uncharted heights in The Green Eraser. A silly prank almost turns lethal, and everyone is forced to choose sides. Will they remain silent and protect the guy they have known forever, or will they stand up for the new kid who comes from a country thousands of miles away?
