The Power of Hello – Synopsis

The Power of Hello cover

The Power of Hello is a narrative through the eyes of Lola, a thirteen-year-old girl who was afraid to make friends but is then unexpectedly befriended by Briyah Lewis, the richest, most beautiful, and popular girl in school. It’s a story about her journey, how she goes from funny and shy then becomes strong and wise, stronger than she ever knew she could be with the wisdom of her grandmother instilled in her since her infancy. Lola and her friends go through it all together—misunderstandings that nearly end their friendship, bullying, bad hair days, and bad breath. These friends stand together with the help of one another and their parents and Lola’s guardian angel, Rokan (he’s an eagle). These friends love and protect one another through the Power of Hello.

This is a really cool website. Just tried it out on a whim and I'm so glad I did! Thanks "Writers Pay It Forward", the more I think about it, the more I see it's truth. Only one writer can understand what another writer is going through, how best to show appreciation for your craft but to help someone else. If we don't show respect to each other first, we make it hard for others to. Everyone thinks writing is easy, well, it isn't. It's legit hard work, it agonizing, brain fogging, heart breaking yet completely fulling and exhilarating work. I'm proud to be an author and I'm grateful I found this site.
