Can a half-Ute boy survive abusive white men?

Sixteen-year-old Jimmy Hunter loves dead things. Decaying fossils and buried men no longer have the power to bite or abuse. Jimmy’s problems exist with the living. The half-Ute-Indian boy must survive the angry white men his mother insists on dating without killing them. Because like it or not, he has killed. The list he keeps has over 500 names on it. He doesn’t want to add any more. Can Jimmy escape to the reservation for the life he’s dreamed of? Or will he die trying?

Biography
From rural Utah, USA, LT Kodzo, received a 2011 Moonbeam Children’s Book award for her first novel Locker 572. She was given the President’s Volunteer Service Award in 2013 for her work in bullying and suicide prevention. She is a dynamic presenter with a decade of professional speaking experience. Her tumultuous youth draws her to the kind of characters who face contemporary and edgy issues with a heart of hope.

Kodzo’s first and favorite book is To Kill a Mockingbird. She explains, “A line in Harper Lee's latest (and first) novel Go Set a Watchman really speaks to me; I, like the adult Scout, feel like "I was born color blind." I understand that cultures can be very different, but people at their heart are the same. I don't feel I ever decided to "become" a writer, I feel like I was born with characters in my head who help me discover the world in a different way. I only hope I do justice to their experiences.”

I have done some Beta reading but it is a mixed experience. Amazon is offering a new program if the author is interested to show their work. Yet, I would worry that material might get stolen. Lots of luck to the author.

Hi Ginger Dawn,
This is the author. Great question I always register a copyright on my works before I send it out into the world. It's not a guarantee against plagiarism, but it protects me legally. What I will say in the 30 years I've been working with writers, I've never met anyone who has had their work stolen so, I find the reward worth the risk.
THANKS, LT Kodzo
