Blurb: Mike Wilson, a junior at Cypress Christian Academy, discovers he's been reading minds by accident. The day after he gets his license, he can drive as well as his Driver's Ed teacher, Mr. Clark. He has a full day of memories straight from the mind of Zayden Perez, the most loved and hated guy at school. This year at CCA, the world-famous tech entrepreneur, Henry Jacks is teaching at the school. Mike inadvertently downloads his mind during the first day of class and now Mike's a tech genius too. He desperately wants Mr. Jacks out of his head and he doesn't want to steal any more thoughts, but that might be the only way he can survive.
About the Author
B.T. Higgins lives in the wild urban jungles of Alaska with his wife and four children. As you might expect, he is an avid fan of long naps and noise-canceling headphones. He has been a garbageman, a propane technician, a teacher, a tutor, a musician and an exotic-bird-cage scrubber, but writing stories is, by far, his favorite job.
BulliesSome things never change. No matter how technology advances, the same battles rage inside the human mind. The world and people apply pressure and struggle, and each person must find a way to cope. These are the struggles that cause us to grow. Whether I am using a computer or stone tools, I still have to contend with bullies. I still have to battle with suffering and loss. The disadvantages of my birth, health, and circumstance create the rocky cliff I must climb to discover who I am. How can I survive this suffering? What kind of person will I choose to be? Will I overcome it? This battle is the true guts of any story, and Becoming the Plagiarist is no different. Mike must content with a bully who is offended by Mike's attempt to rise in the social rankings of the school. He must battle through the disadvantage of being born with only part of his right foot. He is alone and must learn to stand strong to protect the weak. Is he just a broken little kid that nobody cares about? Or is he stronger than he thinks?
