On Wednesday, September 4th, 1996, it is the first day of high school for Timberly, Barry, Stefania, Zaurah and Latrice in New York City. All come from various backgrounds that includes the regions of the Carribean, Italy and the North Southern region of America that would add into the melting pot of their school. Yet, who said it would be easy? Stereotypes and prejudices arise even in one's family: Zaurah as a Rastafarian can attest to this. It may not be depicted now, but this book is the beginning of a Christian series. Under God's eyes, we are all one blood. For more information, visit www.isabisinside.com

Dec 20, 2007Again, this type of story really is not my thing at all, but that will not prevent my showing my appreciation of the taking up of a style and putting together an excellent start to a good story. I didn't read it all, but I read enough to know that with the right break, you seem to have what it takes to break into the short, sharp, stuttery type stories of commercial fiction, particularly the boy/girl, boy off the rails, girl can't help but get together with the best friend scenario. You know what I mean, I hope. So, yes, a well deserved two thumbs up. I can't put three, not without reading more, which I can't do at the moment. Regards John Haines
Jun 4, 2007"A Wonderful First to a Potentially Great Series" 'Being One' by Isabis inside in a beautiful book and a wonderful story. Isabis's experience with the media has helped her to spin a great tale. It is highly recommended for Christian youth or seekers. It is hoped that Isabis will follow this book with others in the series and continue to inspire young persons.
Sep 29, 2006"TCM Reviews, Ms. Tami Brady" High school. Everything seems to change once you walk though those doors. People suddenly notice that you are different. Dear friends have falling outs and go their separate ways. Everyone is trying to figure out who they are, where they came from, and who they want to be. It’s an amazing time but it is also filled with chaos and confusion. Being One explores the lives of a group of teenagers as they enter high school. These individuals explore a myriad of topics ranging from friendship and family through spirituality and cultural values to the daily school grind and their futures. There were several things that I thought make this book stand out from other coming of age stories. Firstly, the text is primarily narrative. Thus, the stories of these young people are told by them in their own words, one teen to another. Unlike some narratives, I didn’t find the text slow or bogged down with unwieldy conversations. The realistic feeling... More > conversations flowed quite well. I was also intrigued that the author was willing to tackle so many issues (including the complex and extremely touchy issues of racism, cultural differences, and religion). These topics were handled quite well with no sugar coating but written in a thoughtful way. That really impressed me.< Less
