Teen bullies are chastised for their shameful behavior while the Donald’s callousness is considered acceptable. A book for young adults probes this double standard and its impact on the American electoral process.
BREA, Calif. - Sept. 17, 2015 - PRLog -- Today’s young adults are constantly drilled on the evils of badgering and bullying. How bewildered they must be seeing broad support for a presidential candidate with a mean-spirited disposition. This contradiction is examined in a book for teens by award-winning author Bruce Edwards. The Age of Amy: The Thumper Amendment is a rollicking fantasy-adventure that takes young readers behind the meanness in campaign politics.
About the Book
The Race for the White House is a TV reality show where candidates compete to win their party’s nomination. With the voting age lowered to fourteen, 16-year-old Amy joins the tomfoolery to support her chosen candidate. But her patriotic zeal is crushed when the opposition implicates her in a series of scandals. Ultimately, Amy’s public ridicule serves her true objective: to urge congressional passage of the “Thumper Amendment” that would make campaign misconduct unconstitutional.
About the Series
