A new book out by Greg Neri takes an imaginative look at the life of Marcus an 11-year old who faces life’s troublesome puzzles. He finds solace in chess and has a mentor who shows him the virtues needed to solve his own problems. Familiar theme, but the book presentation is inspirational and artistic. First of its kind!
