A fifteen-year-old student-athlete and former Scripps National Spelling Bee participant, Adom Appiah, is out with his third book, Kids Can Change the World – Young Readers’ Edition.

His book, according to Blacknews.com, is aimed at motivating other people of his age and children to also write. The book has already been accepted by the United States Library of Congress.

Adom’s first book, Kids Can Change the World, was published in June 2017 while his second, titled Bouncing Back from Failure, was released in July of 2018.

Kids Can Change the World encourages kids to turn their passion into progress, while Bouncing Back from Failure offers an uplifting perspective for kids facing disappointment.
