There are those who have adapted to the "Outside," the tobacco shop and casino owners; and the New Seminole, a small ragtag band of renegades who get pro active by fighting back to take back their land, in this case, south Florida. Perhaps you are like the NS. They are proud of their heritage and want nothing to do with the "Outside." That said, the Nokosee books are also Romeo and Juliet/West Side Story romances with warring parents who don't want their kids together. It's realistic, violent, and funny and, although these books were written before DAPL and the Water Protectors made the scene, they are more relevant than ever re protecting the environment, i.e., if the New Seminole were facing down the pipeline power brokers, it wouldn't have ended "peacefully" so in that sense it's cathartic if you're feeling its a hopeless fool's agenda to make the world a better place to live. As far as being a white fantasy, it might be if you're an Indigenous male who likes his women brave and resilient no matter what their color. That said, the white heroine is far from perfect (she behaves badly, is self-absorbed, and feels entitled) but by the end of the book has transformed herself-- thanks to Nokosee and the adventures they shared-- into a fierce heroine worthy of anybody's love and respect.(less)

Written in first person this contemporary romance between two teenagers is aimed at, you guessed it, the young adult crowd. Nikosee, a Seminole, is on a "walkabout" when he accidentally encounters Stormy. The product of a divorce, she is spending time with her father when she becomes separated from him during a wildfire in the Everglades.

Dialog between the teens is fast-paced. The reality-action-adventure contains f*rt*ng and other silliness to get some laughs. You have the elements of heat,

Stormy has been exiled to Florida by the courts and her mother as part of her father's "joint custody" rights. When her father decides to have her help put out one of the worst fires Florida has ever seen as part of her "character building," he accidentally forgets about her and leaves her to find her way through the blaze!

Saved by a Seminole named Nokosee, she finds herself being held hostage for ransom by Nokosee's father's orders. With parents who'd

"Micco Mann" is the pseudonym of the Special Agent who interviewed Stormy Jones. The book is based on those notes.
