This story "Borderline Hero" was very "timely" because it deals with many facts that are present in our modern day society.
The big story a young journalist-to-be dreamed of writing some day materializes a lot quicker than he ever imagined, when hostilities break out back home after Texas enacts harsher new abortion and immigration laws following their long-sought-after separation from the United States. War is imminent as Curtis begins a last-minute investigation into the chain of events that led to this catastrophic showdown. (Website Overview)
The story illustrates the issues that are featured almost daily on television and in our newspapers, concerning civil rights, abortion/anti-abortion laws and the problems the United States is facing with illegal aliens coming into this country on a daily basis.
The book also illustrates what might happen if any of our "border" states decides to secede from our great union.
I found Mr. Konecnik's work well-researched, believeable and very interesting.
Would I recommend this book "Borderline Hero" to others? YES!
Kenneth Konecnik splits his time between Foley, Ala. and Mundelein, Ill. He holds a bachelor's degree in marketing and advertising from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and now writes full time. His novel, "Borderline Hero," provides a glimpse of what life could be like if topics such as abortion and immigration become victims of extremism.
