About the Book 

Afia and Maliq are growing up “six houses down” from each other, back when television consisted of five channels, children played outdoors until the streetlights came on, and neighbors all knew one another. When the story opens, Afia is five, and Maliq is seven. In the years that follow, their friendship grows as they have fun together, look out for each other, and help each other through difficult times.

Afia and Malik will discover essential lessons about compassion and forgiveness. Learning what it is to love your neighbor when Afia and her mother welcome the new family on the street and as Maliq’s parents bring twin babies into the world. When Maliq is threatened by his teammates, he proves himself with grace and humor, learning that he doesn’t have to be ashamed of what he does, whether in music, art, sports, or walking home with a friend like Afia. The story closes with the two young people reflecting on all they have shared over the years and on the specialness of their friendship.

The author has provided study questions and activities after the opening and closing parts to help young people think about friendship, prayer, and their hopes for the future.

“In a book crafted to connect with both the hearts and minds of our young, TimEtta Wilson makes a whimsical, childlike, and very rememberable case for morality, kindness and unselfishness.”

~ Dwight Nelson, Pastor

“Each chapter had a positive theme and had me imagining my childhood and teen years. Very Captivating Book!!!”

~Michael Meriweather, Counselor

“Benjamin’s (8), favorite part of the story is "Maliq's New Watch." He said it taught him that if you lose something you can ask God for help.”

~ Olivia Tate, Mix Media Artist

Available in PAPERBACK, HARDBACK and eBOOK formats.

    In a book crafted to connect with both the hearts and minds of our young, TimEtta Wilson makes a whimsical, childlike, and very rememberable case for morality, kindness and unselfishness. Not many books these days are targeting this vital demographic slice of our faith community. Here at last is a story you can share with kids of all ages—for Jesus.

  3. Very on time for today's children 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Nov 2023

    TEACH Services received the following review:
    This Book is very on time for today's children. Afia and Maliq are relatable to my 15, 13, and 8 children. I love the genuine emotions shown throughout. Afia was my favorite character because of her kindness and willingness to self-examine during confusing times. A real story of how friendship can grow into love, including all the lessons to be learned along the way. I appreciated the reflection questions at the end to see the thought process of the reader as well as their comprehension.

    My Son, Benjamin, favorite part of story is "Maliq's New Watch". He said it taught him that if you loose something you can ask God for help.

  4. Very Captivating Book!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Nov 2023

    TEACH Services received the following review:
    The story held my interest. the chapter where Afia was noticing Omocho muscles felt like she was older than 10 years old. I think that part is out of character for a 10-year-old. The chapter on the mean girl's punishment was too long. I liked the questions and suggestions at the end of the book. They were very creative. Each chapter had a positive theme and had me imagining my childhood and teen years. Very Captivating Book!!!
    ~Michael Meriweather, counselor


  5. Entertained and Inspired 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Nov 2023

    TEACH Services received the following review:
    Lessons of love, support, and fruits of the Spirit are presented through the lives of two childhood friends. Not only, was I entertained by the young couples experiencing day to day situations, I was inspired by revelation of truth as the situations were resolved. Wilson's book is one that adults and children will gain much from reading and responding to the author's questions at the end of different chapters.
    ~ Johnnie Maberry, Retired Professor of Art, Tougaloo College
