More About the Author

Hi, Everyone!

This is Bobbi White, author of ESCAPE FROM MARIANNA,a serious fictional representation of an actual adventure. The story opens with the escape of two 16 yr olds from a notorious juvenile facility in Florida. (This prison has been in the news lately. Children's skeletal remains were unearthed from behind the school. See the many New York Times reports.) The book follows their desperate attempt to go north (on foot) while pursued by a madman, and follows their adventures until they are 21.
So, is it YA? Sure, I believe any intelligent teen would love this story. But my feedback tells me adults enjoy it too and feel strongly the social justice message.The book has won three awards! Yep, it's a good one.
Coming next!!!! A trilogy about an amazing dog: TOBIAS.

***Now*** about me:
I grew up surrounded by dogs and horses in the anthracite coal mining district of NE Pennsylvania. (The first book of my new trilogy, TOBIAS, concerns the dreaded collapse of an abandoned silver mine in western Nevada where I now live.) I went to Catholic school, won a Voice of America contest with a poem that disqualified me because "no one that young could write a poem like that without adult help." At first this stung, but in my life-long habit of searching negatives for something positive, I took it as a compliment.

I published a few things, moved to Philadelphia, graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a "most creative student award," began teaching at-risk teens, lived 7 years in the Caribbean, moved back to Florida, resumed teaching young adults, raised four children, moved West, became a job placement director, became editor of the Las Vegas People's Press, traveled extensively up, down, and across California, and never stopped believing and writing. I love life, animals, mountains, deserts and all those who truly care about it all.

HAPPY READING! :)

This is a story that will leave you certain that we live largely unaware of the courage and difficult survival of those less fortunate than most of us. The author seems to understand the pain of her characters firsthand. Once you reach the point where she makes you aware of who these young men are you will find your curiosity driving you to reach the conclusion without interruption. It is a very worthwhile read.

I could not put this book down, either! Sometimes incredible, sometimes sympathetic! Once I started reading this novel, I could not stop it, which must be easy to read and understand for foreigners, too, because I am also from a foreign country and translating it into my native language.

I could not put this book down! I see it as a movie. The author's style creates a vivid image of each scene and you feel like you are right there bearing witness to the whole thing. I hope to read more from this author soon!

A harrowing story and we need to be careful that this isn't still happening in our own communities. Here in Nevada, juveniles are shipped off to rural counties for "corrections" and these are counties where perhaps only 2% of the state's population resides. These facilities are big business since they are the area's largest employer. I can see how this could easily happen in Ely, Elko, and Indian Sp;rings -- rural communities that readily accept prisons or juvenile facilities that no one else wants in their back yard.
