Tia kicked off the session by introducing herself to the students, sharing her journey as an author and her passion for storytelling. With enthusiasm, she delved into the backstory of her latest book, "Crossing the Line." This gripping novel explores the lives of teenagers caught up in the dangerous world of county lines, where the allure of fast money and power comes at a devastating cost.
