Beschreibung

In this, Mr. Carey-Infante's third novelette dealing with the very important issue of LGBTQ teen bullying, Bani Chamberlain once again finds herself in the precarious position of peacemaker. One day after her former bully's father went on a crime spree and attempted to flee the country, she is unexpectedly called into the principal's office. Her life is once again turned upside down before she has a chance to catch her breath. One of her classmates, a repeated victim of bullying, attempts suicide and reaches out to her for help. When she takes on this new challenge of making it better right now for one more person, she is thrown into the secretive world of ex-gay reparative therapy. Bani finds herself having to deal with two separate dilemmas: Can she stop the bullies at her school? And, Can she stop Ryan's parents from sending him to ex-gay prison camp—a certain death sentence for him?

Über den Autor

Mr. Carey-Infante was born and raised in suburban Philadelphia. He graduated from Millersville University of Pennsylvania in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Mr. Carey-Infante currently resides in the Bronx, New York, living with and married to the love of his life, Walter Infante. He writes what he likes to call realistic thriller fiction. The work that Mr. Carey-Infante is most proud of is his award winning short story TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL, A 9/11 SHORT STORY. It's an inspirational story born out of the ashes of the tragedy of the World Trade Center disaster in New York City on September 11, 2001.Mr. Carey-Infante, who was abused and bullied as a child, is now an avid child abuse and LGBTQ anti-bullying advocate. He has made it his mission to end bullying of all kinds, and to make it better right now. What a better way to do that than to write about true-life experiences of abused and bullied teens and how they confront, over-come and even, in some cases, embrace their abusers and bulliers. You can follow Mr. Carey-Infante's LGBTQ teen stories through his Bani Chamberlain series of novelettes. The first two novelettes, BANI'S DILEMMA and BANI FINDS HER SOMETHING are now available for your enjoyment.Mr. Carey-Infante has extensively traveled the world and experienced life from a perspective not afforded many. Geoffrey S. Brooks, the protagonist in his novels OUR LITTLE SECRET and A SECRET CHILL, has been touted as the gay Jack Ryan, made famous by award-winning author Tom Clancy. Follow Geoffrey Brooks as he quietly captures image after image of his childhood, piecing together for us a tale of rape, murder and the loss of childhood innocence to the realization of a dream as an operative for the National Security Agency.For those of you into m/m erotica, Mr. Carey-Infante has written his first gay erotic thriller, titled ANATOMY OF AN INTERNET DECEPTION. It's an adults only erotic tale of love and deception taken from actual e-mail exchanges, really love letters, between two men who are unwittingly falling in love with each other. Both of them, however, have their own agendas...and love isn't one of them.

PROLOGUE

Hi again! It's me, Bani! Did you miss me? I sure missed you! I've been rather busy since we were last together. As you will recall my new friend, and yes, my former bullier, Phillip, was going through a tough time. His father had just been arrested for rape, domestic violence, arson and murder to name just a few of the charges levied against him. If you're even a little bit curious read Bani Finds Her Something. Oh, and while I'm doing some shameless promoting, check out my blog. I call it Bani's Rants. You can find it at http://kcareyinfante.wordpress.com. I have to warn you though: being an out lesbian and self-professed rebel I have a lot to say, and some of you aren't going to like it.

Before I forget, I've gotten countless questions about my complicated name, and what it means. It's pronounced just like Bonnie, as in my Bonnie lies over the ocean—see, not so complicated. So the story goes, when mom was pregnant with me she and dad took a vacation to India. They visited the Taj Mahal, best known not only as one of the most beautiful buildings in the world, but also a symbol of eternal love. Mom and dad decided to take one of those guided tours so that they could get the full flavor of it. The tour guide's name was none other than Bani. Mom, ever the inquisitive one, asked about the origin of the name. Bani explained to her that it was Sanskrit and it meant Music of Love. The rest is history, although, I've got to tell you that I can't carry a tune to save my life.

As most of you know, as a former victim of bullying I have made it my mission to make it better right now. I know, and I really do hear you. It's a whole lot tougher than it sounds—but a girl can dream, can't she? With that mission in mind, my dads treated me to a state-of-the-art, top-of-the-line computer for my birthday. It's tomorrow, July 27, 2011. I'll be 16-years old. Now if they would only let me have a cell phone, like every other kid at school—but I digress.

One more thing before I tell you about a young man who felt it necessary to attempt to kill himself as his only way to stop the bullying. After hearing his story I decided to set-up a Facebook page because I have quickly come to realize that social media is the best way to talk to people in real time. I would love it if you guys would friend me at Bani Chamberlain. If any of you have a bullying or abuse story you would like to share than please send me a message. Who knows, perhaps I'll feature it in one of my novelettes so that we can help others who might be struggling with that very same issue.

CHAPTER ONE

As if my week hadn't been horrible enough with all
