#NABJ features NIA & THE NUMBERS GAME, A Teenager's Guide to Education, Relationships & Sex by Dr. Kela Henry at this year's premier gathering from August 7-11
Dr. Kela Henry (aka Dr. Kela) and her debut book “Nia & The Numbers Game: A Teenagers Guide to Education, Relationships & Sex” are going to the NABJ19 Authors Showcase. This year the panel had dozens of entries of outstanding books to pick from, and “Nia & The Numbers Game” was among them. The books were judged by a team of experienced NABJ members on compelling subject matter, writing style, relevance and uniqueness. This year’s theme is Fight The Power: Press Forward with Passion and Purpose.
Released on BTH Creations LLC, a new imprint started by Dr. Kela, “Nia & The Numbers Game: A Teenagers Guide to Education, Relationships & Sex” is part novel, part self-help guide, and aims to teach teenage girls about decision-making. Growing up is a confusing, and often lonely experience. Shining a much-needed light into this darkness is Nia (Swahili for purpose), whose journey to adulthood is fraught with all the struggles of adolescence. Readers follow Nia, a typical African American girl, on her life’s journey. Nia’s troubles with her divorced and rule-oriented parents, her entrance into puberty, her relationships with both friends and boyfriends, and her academic ambitions are a lens through which readers can understand their own personal development. From changes in her body, to the joy of first love, to the pressures to have sex and on top of all that, applying to college, the book explains to readers how everyday choices directly impacts one’s future. Although Nia makes mistakes along the way, Dr. Henry stresses the importance in how Nia considers and thinks about her actions rather than acting impulsively.
