SPEEDSUIT POWERS: The Opposition – Book 2
Curtis and Treyshawn are two fatherless boys who struggle to navigate the world. Curtis seeks to build on the life lessons his father taught him. Treyshawn seeks to break down the walls his father put between them. As these boys transition into manhood, how will they survive?
At the start of ninth grade, Treyshawn bullied Curtis relentlessly! But, this motivated Curtis to create a hi-tech plan. With the help of his family, his best friend Kelly and others, that plan did more than anyone thought possible and changed everyone’s lives forever! In the process, the boys settled their differences and forged a friendship to help each other overcome the obstacles they faced. Their friendship led to the creation of the Mach-1 Speedsuit and earned them worldwide recognition.
Now, Curtis, Treyshawn and Kelly are on a new adventure to further pursue their dreams: college. Their future seems sure, but they soon learn that opportunity often comes with opposition. The pressures they encounter cause them to question everything: Is Curtis fast enough to stop tragic events? Does Treyshawn really have his life under control? Will Kelly’s growing love for Curtis be challenged by his increasing fame?
As the answers to these questions unfold, Curtis, Treyshawn and Kelly discover: ‘When everyone isn’t for you, you still must press toward your destiny.’

MOVE! Your Destiny is Waiting on You
Are you unsure of your purpose, your capabilities, and how you’ve been created to impact the world? When outcomes don’t seem clear, do you hesitate or refuse to make decisions for fear of making a mistake? Have you felt ‘stuck’ because of a lack of direction?
In ‘MOVE!’ Allen Paul Weaver III deals with this reality head-on by helping you understand your intrinsic value, skills and talents, and ability to choose an increasingly significant life. He then provides a reflection-and-action process to help you develop vision, set goals and overcome insecurities. This process will help you move from where you are to where you need and want to be.
Wherever you want to move – God is waiting on you to step out and do your part, so he can do his part. ‘MOVE!’ presents a model, which—if applied—can help to transform the trajectory of your existence. Don’t be disqualified… be determined. As much as you are waiting on destiny… Destiny is waiting on You! Are you ready to MOVE?
“Allen has fused his personal life experiences with biblical references, very sound critical thinking exercises and inspiring words that stick. I immediately shared my copy of Move with my son and plan to purchase additional copies for my son-in-law and 2 nephews. I would highly recommend this book, especially to young men of color, navigating through life and into their God-given purposes.” - Patricia Walker, VA
Transition: Breaking Through the Barriers
Who am I? What is my purpose? Everyone struggles with these thoughts. Even if we do find answers to these questions, there are still barriers that prevent us from discovering our true identity and living free. Some barriers we put up ourselves, while some are erected by others. Once we trust in God and discover how to break through these barriers, we become so much stronger.
An anthology of poetry, short stories, and essays, Transition recounts major moments and observations from the last ten years of author Allen Paul Weaver III’s life. He shares many deeply personal aspects of his journey to self-discovery. He writes candidly about his suicide attempt and life struggles. Allen also seeks insight into the issues we all wrestle with: family, life, death, education, career, prejudice, relationships, society, the nature of God, and our destiny.
No matter your gender or ethnic background, the profound thoughts in Transition challenge you to improve yourself and give you courage to break through the ever-present barriers that we all face.
God has a purpose for your life! Are you ready to take the journey?
“Allen Paul Weaver III speaks in clear and raw terms in his book, Transition: Breaking Through the Barriers. He boldly shares, with the reader, his quest to unearth the significance God has placed within his own soul; with the hope that we will be motivated to search out the destiny that is laid up for each of us. Any collection of writings which span a decade is an impressive feat. Transition is a quality work and recommended reading for any man who is serious about pressing through their internal and external opposition that stands between them and their God-given dreams.” Hajj Fleming, Author of The Brand Yu Life, Canton, Michigan
