  Nobody considers their land forsaken. Nobody considers their hearts lost or their courage not enough to face their future. But in some dark corners of the universe just that happens. People lose hope. People break down. And the heart of the land stands cursed and dry. Unable to allow the flow of tears of the people. Earth faces a quiet destruction, the destruction of a broken spirit and the festering of it's own indulgences. All framed with the quiet smile of her people. A quiet acceptance and submission to the flow towards ultimate destruction.   “God has forsaken us” the people cry. Not understanding it was their own selfish ways that lead them down this dark path of self annihilation. Even so, there is still hope, unknowingly resting on a man, working as a historian for a prestigious university and a young boy, whom fate would have it, changed his society forever..

As well as the extraordinary struggle to stand up for her values and right to decide her future.   With fear and trembling, her struggle to seek acceptance in a alien society and find her place in the grand scheme of things starts with a move. A move to a new unknown country. Never in in their lives had her family had been judged by what they wore or what they owned, where they lived. From a dictatorship to a capitalistic society they discovered the free country wasn't what the stories told them.   Watching her parents and brothers struggle to cope with the changes. Things go from bad to worse. She tries to impress on her school placement examination.

The fight to protect her naive parents from manipulative teachers and school administrators. And a decision, hers alone, to either accept an offer and get everything she could ever want, or stand up for what she valued most.   Based off a true story.

In a day and age where social interaction has moved from the house party or grocery store to the internet. We have a generation growing up unlike any before it. I honestly believe in a generation where face to face interaction has been warped by false understanding of what friend means, this is needed. A book devoted to the structure and design of social interaction.   This book covers the basics of social structure, building and maintaining relationships and your image/reputation and much more.
