"Hail Atlantis!" What a superb read with diversity and pop culture
I never would have thought I would have read a even better book than The Last Prince of Atlantis, I love how the main character Allen is multi-cultural and his two best friends. Francisco a Latino and Jake a white dude. Despite that, the storyline is really good and it paces itself really well and you feel for the struggle Allen goes through with high school drama and trying to find himself in the world as a prince from the lost kingdom of Atlantis. I can see this novel becoming a movie like Harry potter one day. Bravo Leonard Clifton for writing a story I can relate to. I come from a biracial background and it makes me proud to see you care about my culture and other people as well. I am a fan for life.
