Drugs, Death and Double-Crossing: Young Man Loses His Way in Miami's Criminal Justice System in the Newly Released Consider the Dragonfly
Pushed over the edge, CJ takes a dark path in a moment of revenge. Consider the Dragonfly tells the harrowing story of a young man who loses himself in drugs and crime … and the prison system.
Pensacola, FL – Drugs, death and dark dealings are commonplace in the Florida prison system … and not a place young CJ ever thought he'd call home. Consider the Dragonfly is a coming-of-age novel of a different sort, and with a darker spin. The newly released suspense novel is published by Outskirts Press.
Raised in a dysfunctional home and longing to fit in, CJ McCallister is in many ways the archetypal American teen: curious, awkward, friendly and shy … until a bully pushes him over the edge.
A sudden vengeful lust sends CJ into the maze of Miami's juvenile system and, ultimately, a state prison where he's immersed in a world of drugs, danger, death and heartbreak. The journey through the tangled web of the criminal justice system brings him friends, enemies and betrayal.
Consider the Dragonfly is the journey of a young man lost on a dead-end road and struggling to find his way toward redemption.
