WHAT THE BOOK IS ABOUT:
Meet Oliver Masque, a lonely student caged by his constant search for belonging. His peers don’t like him and his hope for acceptance dwindles day after day. When the largest annual public speaking competition begins, Oliver must decide to break free from his misery or continue walking in the shadows.
WHY I WROTE IT:
I firmly believe effective communication is the vital skill everyone should possess. If you say the right thing, to the right person, at the right time, in the right way, there’s a strong possibility of changing that person’s life for the better. The story of Can’t Escape aims to embody that message.
AN EXCERPT OF THE BOOK:
Mrs. Wilkins encouraged her final year art students to
share personal items in front of the class. Despite her
colleagues’ disapproval of hosting the “childish” Show and
Tell in high school, Mrs. Wilkins organized it during the first
week of school.
She gently gestured for Oliver Masque to rise from his seat.
Her emerald green eyes tried locking onto Oliver’s hazel
pupils, but he refused to raise his head.
“Oliver, the class is waiting for you,” Mrs. Wilkins chirped.
Oliver stayed put. He wasn’t going to embarrass himself.
