NEW YORK - Oct. 30, 2019 - PRLog -- Nia & The Numbers Game: A Teenager's Guide to Education, Relationships & Sex is a young adult part-novel, part-self-help book. Defying the traditional publisher's aversion to books that straddle both fiction and non-fiction, the self-released Nia & The Numbers Game is hitting a chord for both teenage girls and parents. Nia's life, including friends, family, school, and dating, with her fictional experiences juxtaposed with Dr. Kela Henry's real-life expertise, is intriguing young readers. The narrative is balanced by the author's "Let's Talk" section at the end of chapters, which explains and enhances the "what if" scenario without talking down to teens.

Teenager Nia Ferguson stays true to herself and does not succumb to peer pressure. Setting goals for herself, to study, get an education and eventually go to medical school, Nia stays on track; overcoming the temptations and the distractions of adolescence.

As the book's popularity grows, so does the attention of highly successful African American journalists, authors, and media hosts. Sandra Bookman, ABC 7 anchor, reporter, and host of HERE & NOW was personally handed the book. Their discussion will be taped and airdate will be announced on Dr. Kela's website and social media platforms. Dr. Kela shares, "My goal is to inspire and motivate teenage girls to make solid decisions and to find the resources they need to have the life they dream of living, no matter what their circumstances. I always tell the young girls that attend my book signings, if I can do it, you can do it!"
