Adjust: Compelling New Novel by Justin Mark Tackles Bullying Head-On; Urging Readers to be Proud of their Differences.

Mark’s powerful narrative shines the literary spotlight on bullying, post-war stress and the struggles of maintaining pride in in the face of adversity. Above all, it champions uniqueness and encourages readers to take bold pride in what really makes them stand out from the crowd.

For Immediate Release

Urbandale, Iowa – While most new authors use their first release to simply test the literary waters, Justin Mark has proven that debut novels are also an opportunity to tackle big issues in society and divert attention to them.

‘Adjust’, Mark’s first major release, grabs hold of society’s hang-ups and puts them center-stage. The result is a ground-breaking novel that is turning heads and winning hearts from coast to coast.

Synopsis:

Eric is an ex-soldier, learning to adjust to a civilian lifestyle. Alex is an eleven year old boy who is bullied at school. Cindy is a high school senior who struggles under the pressures of society.

They all go through their lives, trying to adjust, struggling, when a major event brings them all together where they will change each other's lives forever.

As the author explains, his book is being released at the perfect time.

“Bullying is a bigger epidemic now than ever before. My book deals with bullying directly, as well as the self-bullying millions experience through post-war stress disorders. It’s a cocktail of emotions and suspense that keeps readers looped in right until the very last page,” says Mark.

Continuing, “Everything comes back to the idea of being proud of who you are – even if you’re different and forced to face adversity as a result. Bullying ruins victims’ lives, literally for those who take the final decision of suicide. My characters encourage readers from all walks of life to be proud of who they are and champion their individuality.”

This character development is what Mark believes allows his writing to stand head and shoulders above similar books.

“My narrative drags readers in so they can feel close to the characters, empathize with them and almost experience everything through their eyes. This is a powerful concept that runs deep throughout every page,” he adds.

With the book’s demand increasing, interested readers are urged to purchase their copies as soon as possible.
