Mikala was a student at Eastern High School when she authored her book. When she grows up, she wants to be a chef. Madison, Sit Down! was her first children's book. She was a junior when she wrote it. She liked seeing the illustrations and putting everyone's ideas together to make the book. She hopes that kids reading it understand that you can make new friends all the time.

Madison is a first-grader who can’t sit still. She wants to make her teacher like her, but she also wants to jump and scream and play tag with her imaginary best friend, Alex. When Madison accidentally lets her class pet bunny out of its cage during recess, she will have to get creative and form unlikely friendships - and not just imaginary ones - if she wants to prove to her class that a hyperactive little girl can still be responsible.
The teen tutors of Reach Incorporated noticed that few children's books reflected their reality. They decided to do something about that: they wrote their own. Now these teens have written eight original books, and are diversifying children's literature, one smart-fun-real-brave-bold story at a time. Learn more.
