Matthews, NC Author Publishes Young Adult Book

By: PR Leap
( The Silver-Horned Girl, a new book by Lisa B. Owens, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

When a girl suddenly wakes up with a beeping silver horn growing out of her head, her normal life is changed. Suddenly she feels scared, left out, and bullied by her peers.

Designed as a conversation starter for facing anxiety, The Silver-Horned Girl demonstrates to teens how similarly insecurity affects everyone. Whether they experience a visible difference or one less obvious, no one should have to suffer in silence. In addition to this creative tale, a section has been dedicated to "Talking Points", a "Mental Health Tool Kit" and valuable resources for students, families, and teachers along with a special space to journal.
