Dec. 29, 2011 - PRLog -- Northern New Jersey, NJ — December 26, 2011 — “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are,” e.e. cummings once said. That statement speaks for pre-teens and teens of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. As well, it speaks for 14-year-old Chloe, heroine of author Kea Alwang's newly released Young Adult Sci-fi Fantasy novel, Treehugger.

Treehugger is the first book in a new series titled, Based on a Dream and is available in print and in various e-reader formats. Mixing intergalactic adventure with adolescent trials such as navigating relationships and not fitting in, the author offers readers (ages 11-16) a group of heroes to follow, admire, and cheer for. “Deep friendship and autonomy are the opposing themes that run through Chloe's story,” says Ms. Alwang. “How deep can true friendships run, and how well can they prepare us to stand on our own when we need to?”
