THE THOUSAND NATURAL SHOCKS 

This is not only a design project, but my first self-publishing project with my husband...the author. Thirteen-year-old Charles Siskin is not like other boys. Set apart from everyone by his odd disposition and what his schoolmates see as a distinctly feminine way of speaking and walking, he has become an outcast. He talks his parents into letting him attend St. Ignatius Loyola High School, an all boys, military private school. And when he auditions for the spring play, he sets a series of events into motion that lead to a crushing and humiliating catastrophe.
