# 2--- SHOWER TALK ----20/20 PLEDGE

                                #2--- SHOWER TALK---- 20/20 PLEDGE 

I am seeking help from a Literary Agent who is willing to offer professional guidance for a book that has potential. The book is entitled, SHOWER TALK—THE 20/20 PLEDGE. 

The book is divided into four parts; 9th 10th 11th and 12th Grades. The book is 95% dialogue, with conversations of boys in the shower after PE class. Some of the conversations are a little vulgar, and sexually driven, but most are constructive, dealing with modern political and social issues. 

Student diversity is added when an African American and Latino American boys are assigned to the PE Class.  The boys decide to form a Shower Club with the main objective, “actions speak louder than words.” Membership in the club requires taking a pledge which in the beginning is called “the penis pledge.” It sounds vulgar but it is not. 

Two of the boys are gay and develop strong attractions for each other. The father of one of the boys is a White Supremacist, anti-gay, war veteran. The two boys decide to go the Senior Prom as a couple.  The anti-gay father brings a tragic ending to the prom. At the senior graduation of 2020, an inspirational valediction speech brings a dramatic ending to the story.
