Book Overview

Nia & The Numbers Game

“Nia and the Numbers Game is an entertaining, sensitive and factual guide for teen girls who are facing decisions about education and sex.”Haywood Smith, New York Times and USA Today Best-Selling Author

Nia & the Numbers Game: A Teenager’s Guide to Education, Relationships & Sex, is a book aimed at teenage girls and their parents that chronicles the adventures of its engaging African-American heroine Nia Ferguson through puberty and beyond. Growing up is a confusing, and often lonely experience, and it doesn’t help when it’s nearly impossible to find answers to all our questions. Shining a much-needed light into this darkness is Nia (Swahili for purpose), whose journey to adulthood is wrought with all the struggles of adolescence. Nia’s troubles with her divorced and rule-oriented parents, entering puberty, her relationships with both friends and boyfriends, and her academic ambitions are a lens through which readers can understand their own personal development.

Nia & the Numbers Game: A Teenager’s Guide to Education, Relationships & Sex  is unlike any other coming-of-age story or guide to growing up. Real experiences shape the snapshots into Nia’s life, which act as catalysts for frank discussions about important topics like STDs, pregnancy, and trust. Author Dr. Kela Henry follows most of the chapters with a “Let’s Talk” section, during which her professional and reassuring voice explains the full context of complex situations and provides facts, medical information, and advice. “I want the audience to know that I am there for them,” writes Dr. Henry, and she does this masterfully. Whether seeking guidance on strict parents, relationships, or furthering education, young people will find this book a comforting friend to which they can turn for information, counsel, and validation.

Dr. Kela Henry, an Atlanta physician,  designed the book as a user-friendly guide for the adolescent girl, to help her learn about the changes occurring in her body as well as how to navigate through typical rites of passage. Nia & the Numbers Game is a unique combination of fact and fiction. Written with the rich detail of a novel, the story follows Nia’s progress from a girl in middle school to college and then on to medical school and becoming  a young doctor who eventually starts a family of her own.
