Synopsis

*** A Teenager Embarks on a Time-Warping Odyssey to Reverse an Unspeakable Tragedy that Appeared to Usher in the Decline of a World Power ***

She is powerful, but she does not know it. She can roll time backward as far as she wants, only with the power of her thoughts. She can even bend time forward in a flash. She can halt time instantly.

She's got many other tricks up her sleeve that her Uncle Walter has taught her.

But she, PooKee, the heroine of the story, is shy. She's humble. She's brave. She fights evil characters who want to harm her. All what PooKee wants, though, is to find her missing father, whom she loves and adores.

Her challenge? Nothing less than to avert an unspeakable tragedy that struck our nation. Will she be able to use her supernatural powers to save her father? Will she be able to reverse the course of history, change the fate of her country?

Through the eyes of 10-year-old PooKee, Brook Tesla tells a touching, magical, and heartbreaking story about the aftermath of an unthinkable tragedy that shook the foundation of a great nation. The result is a heart-warming novel demonstrating the love, determination, and courage of an innocent child who shares the highs and lows of her painful struggle to survive.

--Commentary--

iPooKee is a startlingly clear mirror of our society and the country. The novel reflects the outstanding achievements of America. But it also raises concerns about what appears to be the moral, economic, and cultural decline of a world power. Are we really on the way down? Has our leadership failed us? Where are we headed? America seems to be immersed in a virtual world that dominates every aspect of our lives. Can we strike the right balance between the real and the unreal?

The book's driving themes focus on our broken system of government, growing disenchantment with the country's direction, perils to our democracy and freedom, and what appears as an accelerated decline of a world power after September 11th 2001.

Excellent, magical, inspiring
August 17th, 2013
An inspiring story about a 10 years old Pookee who is looking for her father in the aftermath of 9/11. She finds herself in the City of @, where she struggles to survive. She does not know that she possesses the power to warp time. But when she discovers her power she attempts to revers history, and save her father. This is an outstanding story to be remembered for years. It's funny and sad and surprising and it's inspiring. In the background are the horrifying days of the tragedy. Lost of confidence in leadership and the daunting feeling that the country is in moral, financial, and social decline are reflected in the text, as well. A great deal of respect is given to the heroes of that tragedy. Very recommend.
