Chilling Cautionary Tale with a Twist
Amanda M. Thrasher’s latest novel 'The Greenlee Project' addresses consequences of Cyber Bullying
Thrasher's latest novel takes an emotional glimpse into the reality of cyber bullying. Cruel betrayal of such magnitude devastates her main character, Greenlee Lynn Granger. Forcing her to make mature decisions teens are often pressured to make due to such terrible acts. The main characters decisions address the outcome of her persecutors, including their punishment, and their future options.
"The Greenlee Project is a touching and chilling cautionary tale that every teen should read. Amanda Thrasher gives us interesting and compelling characters, a well-crafted plot, and a breathless pace. Her teens are so real that you will feel you know them personally. Normal adolescent insecurity and thirst for acceptance trumps friendship and consideration, leading to a nightmare: a runaway chain of uncaring unflattering, and unmerciful photos and posts, threatens to destroy friendships, self-regard, and careers. Technology magnifies the worst instincts of the people involved, while the victims must decide how to face up to their tormentors. Teens will find 'The Greenlee Project' a compelling read and helpful guide, while adults will see the challenges today's teens face. This is a grand and important story..." - David A. Bedford, Ph.D. Instructor of Spanish at TCU
