Rita Rumble has so many shoes she doesn't know what to do with them all! But what she doesn't have is self-esteem, so she wears fancy clothes to feel good about herself. But when she goes Head over Blue Heal at a party and falls in front of everyone, she learns from Blue, a single blue shoe, that what you wear inside is more important than the clothes on the outside.

My hope is that the metaphors in this book will strike a cord with the reader. Life can often leave us asking the rhetorical question, "Why Me!" It's a fundamental truth that none of us can get through this life without tough times. Tragic events will happen to you. So... It's up to us to decide how we will respond and a lot of that choice depends upon our character. We could chose to allow the tragic, tough times in our life to become the excuses for the rest of our life's failures, or, we can allow them to focus our souls and, in turn, they become the empowerment we need to succeed. The choice seems simple enough, however, if our character isn't strong the moment of emotion will guide our path, clouding our judgment and our decisions. I believe that character development should start at a very young age. And, I also believe that metaphors allow us (adult's and children) to change our perspective and take ownership of the real change in our life. "Head over Blue Heal: The Story of Rita Rumble" is an attempt at just that. Where the real hero of this story isn't the blue shoe, rather it's the red one. They say to truly understand someone you must walk a mile in their shoes... I invite you to walk in Rita's.From the Back Cover:
