Taking Back the Bullet

This contemporary, character-driven novel is about people who are stigmatized. However, once they discover their true identities, each is empowered to begin the journey of life’s purpose. • Police Officer Tom Jennings is obese as a mutant Idaho potato in a jiggling gelatin suit; • James Odessa-Smith lives with a mental illness classified as schizoaffective disorder; • Young Suanna Morningcloud, half Nez Perce Indian and half Caucasian, is a person with albinism. Meeting during a botched bank robbery in Prairie Grove, Kansas, they experience tragedy and trauma. Forever changed and connected, they are forced to ask, “Who am I and where do I belong?” Taking Back the Bullet explores the themes of stigma, identity, and self-discovery. The multi-layered stories are an escape into reality. Book orders at website: jimpotterauthor.com; e-mail: jim@copintheclassroom.com; phone: (620) 899-3144; or mail: PO Box 1172, Hutchinson, KS 67504
