Author Vera Alexanderabout this book: In The Twinkling of an Eye is an Illustrated/Graphic novel about a boy facing life on his own at fifteen.

Well, he does have a mother. She's in Dubai, and she pays all the bills... Sweet deal! Eric can do what he likes, live as he pleases; no one tells him NO. He can party every night, all night. He can drink, he can go to school, or not...He is free to make his own choices.

One night he discovers there is a cost for freedom, and for choices; and sometimes the price is paid in blood...

This story was written to illustrate the plight of young people growing up in no-parent homes, facing the challenges and temptations of modern life without guidance or protection. This is a new reality. Teens and pre-teens are effectively raising themselves: some successfully; others with disastrous, heartbreaking results.

As a teacher it has been my privilege to meet many extraordinary young people, to whom I dedicate this book.
