Chase Manfield and Teddy Downing are diamonds in the rough in the new, two-part novel, Chase: A Special Person & The Discovery of Teddy Downing, by Matt Shea.

Chase represents those exceptional people in society who are naturally deficient in certain areas, but are graced with passion. Teddy, on the other hand, knows rejection, being raised by his grandmother. But these two young boys have more in common than meets the reader's eye.

Each juvenile is fully aware that his mere appearance can taunt a social injustice. They do, however, possess a remarkable strength that dissolves this cruelty. Their first-hand experience of being misunderstood allows them to easily identify the pain in others; courage, love and understanding are the tools that they incorporate. Chase and Teddy nurture the very insecurities that their critics secretively battle and bring down the wall. What happens next is a beautiful unification. In the end, everyone is grateful that Chase Mansfield or Teddy Downing entered their life.

Matt Shea is a developing author greatly inspired by the writings of Andy Griffith and focuses on the common folk that small towns are made of. He credits the success of his first book, The Groundskeeper and Other Short Stories to his family. The values that were instilled throughout his childhood gave him the strong sense of justice that is conveyed through his writings. The Shea family is only an average American family from an average neighborhood. Their secret is that they are close knit and accept others.

Chase: A Special person & The Discovery of Teddy Downing is available in softcover (ISBN 978-1-62137-428-2) and eBook (ISBN 978-1-62137-429-9) at Virtualbookworm.com, Amazon.com, and Barnesandnoble.com.
