(a novel in the SunWriters Series)
By Mellissa U. Offoha
In this first novel by this new author, the reader is introduced to the trials and triumphs of Dante Gourmet. As a consequence of his academic prowess, Dante is transplanted from his destitute, urban environment to a college world laden with the children of the powerful, and the opulence that surrounds them. Meandering through his new world and its challenges, the young man grapples with being poor and different, and with an inter-racial romance in which he found himself. Taunted and haunted, he found solace in his unique writing and poetic skills, even as the world he had left behind beckoned him one last time. In search of answers to the difficult questions of life and mortality, Dante writes an autobiography, hence Dante’s Destiny. This work is particularly remarkable because the author was still in High School when it was published.
