Marcia Carrington writes about the human condition, exploring what makes people tick, but in an upbeat and optimistic tone. She is an interested observer of popular culture, and fan of cinema from all eras and countries, especially from the 1930-1970s. Marcia is a long-time soap opera viewer, watching daytime, and night time serials from a very young age.
Marcia is also a food connoisseur, with a particular love of chocolate, and coffee. The morning coffee has always been a staple for Marcia, and something which she cannot do without. There is just something about the fresh aroma of coffee early in the morning, and anytime for that fact, which proves irresistible to her.
Marcia can be contacted on Twitter, and you can also visit her on her Blog at http://marciasbooktalk.wordpress.com/ and on Pinterest.

I loved this story!
The author has a way of connecting the reader to the story, as though we were there, observing. I think we have all known people who have moved away from their old schools to attend a new one, and dreading what they would find there. Would people like them? Would they have any friends? Would people pick on them?
Once again, the author has taken me back to my days at school, watching the "new kid" get picked on. I was usually the one who became their first friend, being somewhat of an outcast myself. We all want to belong, fit in and have friends. I would ask that you read this story, and think of those you have known over the years that were the new kid, and how they were treated, not only by others, but by yourself.
