The Last Shall Be First Children's Series
An Act of Forgiveness
During one of Ms Frazier’s fifth grade bible lessons on forgiveness at Noah's Christian Academy, Caleb daydreams about his being constantly bullied by the school’s gang, who teases him after learning of his less than perfect living arrangements within a foster home. Even as well-kept as the home might be, it doesn't keep him away from those who refuse to see him as he really is. One day after being beat up by his aggressors, Leander and Marcus, Caleb decides to focus his attention towards keeping his grades in check while helping his favorite teacher with school chores and activities to get his mind off of the negativity these bullies bring to him and everyone around them. One day when the school's computer lab gets vandalized, it is now a test of character and forgiveness that Caleb must pass in order to see himself as a winner and first amongst him peers.
Daughter of Destiny
In the second installment to The Last Shall Be First series, the main character, Caleb, takes a back seat as Noah's Christian Academy gains a new member to the student body. Jonetta Jenkins is a bright, but seemingly delinquent child who has had a few hang-ups in life. Raised by her single father, Jonetta has to come to terms with living a life without her mother. Until one day Caleb befriends Jonetta and embarks on finding out the real reason why her mother is not around, in the hopes of reconnecting the two together, if only for one moment in time.
