New Release: Once Brothers

Amidst the Christmas craziness, I have been working away behind the scenes to bring you Once Brothers, a story about brotherhood and belonging. I just love all of the brothers in this book, especially little Sammy.

(Keep scrolling down for information on my latest classic book releases.)

I’ll start you off with a teaser:

There was an ache in Deke’s chest that had nothing to do with bruised ribs. He pressed his hand to his breastbone. Deke had once had brothers too. He remembered them walking him to school. It seemed like a long time ago. Another life. But now he had his gang brothers. Plenty of guys to watch his back. Or to fight with. They were just like brothers. There was no difference.

Jacob, fifteen and a loner, never thought he’d get mixed up with a gang.

Deke, older now, had sought the gang out for protection when he had no family of his own to rely upon.

And Sammy, only ten, pressed into service as a gang courier, is terrified of where his job with the gang will lead.

Three boys, each brothers, their lives all converging. Can they survive within their gangs? Without them?

—An easy-to-read portrait of urban gang life and the tough and trying bonds between family, friends, and brothers in arms.

—Courage and strength tested to the core of life and death in this exhilarating story of three remarkable boys.

—Every single one of [P.D. Workman’s] books has spoken to me in ways no one or almost anything else has. And I have found strength in the books I’ve read.

—The way that P.D. Workman writes just flows amazingly and allows the reader to get really invested in a book.

Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions

(Junior High/Middle School Level, grades 7+)

Flatland was first published in 1884 and is a unique combination of satirical comment on Victorian society and mathematical exploration of geometry and the first through fourth dimensions. Though not as well-known as Jonathan Swift’s satire, Gulliver’s Travels, it has been commented on by Einstein, Isaac Asimov, Carl Sagan, and Stephen Hawking, and has even been mentioned in the television series The Big Bang Theory.

A Square’s journey through Pointland, Flatland, and Spaceland will give you a unique perspective on English society in the 1800s that stands on its own merit today.
