New Book “Almost Grown” Features a Collection of Short Stories About the Ups and Downs of Current Teen Life

Almost Grown by Tony Lindsay

Bookcover and author, Tony Lindsay

Spartanburg, SCAlmost Grown by Tony Lindsay is a collection of fifteen short stories with teen and young adult main characters. These young characters live ordinary day-to-day lives with unexpected twists, and there are no “super” adults saving them; they must work through some of the pit falls and problems of growing up. The reader journeys through bad decisions made better, and young people realizing that it is ok not to be right, or the best all the time. Being almost grown is difficult, but these stories show the pleasure of that stage of life as well.

Lindsay’s book is published by Golden Butterfly Publishing, an independent small press started in 2008. Their motto is “Enhancing children’s unique creativity”, which is based on the idea that children’s creativity is something to be praised, explored, and encouraged. Too often, there are children with the potential to be great artists, and those children are never encouraged to take a chance and develop their talent. The goal of this company is to enhance children’s unique creativity through publishing children’s books, producing educational materials, consulting, readings, and performances with children.
