Matthew is a true believer of people, the world, love and dreams. As the father of four children he looks at the world from a child’s eye. Screen Boy is the story of what we are doing wrong. Chance is the Dog that comes to fix it.
Screen Boy is a book about a young man that gets caught up in the world of technology and gaming and loses his friends, his athleticism, and his priorities. He realizes one day that he is lost in screens and a virtual reality and the only one left to save him is his trusty dog. Screen Boy is the sign of the times for children and parents these days as they see their kids spending hours on their phones and gaming devices—so the story is very relevant and interesting. Moreover, it is the actions taken by the boy and the dog to correct the situation that is the real message, as Screen Boy rises from his despair and gains focus toward his goal of getting active again and being a respected athlete to his family and friends. Readers of Screen Boy should take with them the message that the iPhone they carry should not own them, and that they can own their destiny, and that with hard work and unconditional love one can do anything.
