About The Event
Despite the Buzz is educational, existential, and exciting! The novel's cautionary tale looks at technology’s toll upon learning, relationships, safety, and wellbeing. A mix of narrative elements makes it an engaging read. The colorful human-interest story is set in a public high school, pre-pandemic. A motivated new teacher raises awareness about screen use inside her Reflective Writing classroom, but she doesn't realize there’s danger lurking. Contemporary communication dramatically impacts the diverse student characters. When an intimate act is shared over social media, an inciting incident demonstrates that the potential in our pockets could be lethal. By providing understanding to those who grew up before and after current trends, this insightful book could build rapport among members from different schools of thought.
