About the Author
Carthornia Kouroupos was born and raised in Brooklyn New York, with family roots from Eatonton Georgia. She moved to southern New Jersey in 1987 with her
3 children and husband of 38 years. She is an English Professor at Rowan College South Jersey and has a M.A. in the Writing Arts from Rowan
University. She writes children’s stories, essays, poetry, fiction, and non fiction. This is her first published children’s book with many more lined up to follow. This book was
inspired by the relentless bullying her granddaughter, Alexis “Zoe” Kouroupos,
endured from kindergarten through middle school for being different.
Today, in high school, Zoe shines brightly and is experiencing more friends than she can handle.
