Madu Eneli's book cover.

Harker Heights Herald

I interviewed the coolest kid today.

Madu Eneli, 13, just published his first book, "Am I Ready For Middle School?" He's an 8th grader at Union Grove Middle School in Harker Heights, loves sports, and wants to open an amusement/water park when he grows up.

I have to say Madu is probably the most polite and mature 13-year-old I've ever met. It's no surprise to me that he had the motivation and drive to write and publish a book at such a young age.

His little siblings, who met me at the front door and invited me to "Sit down!" on the couch, were very polite too, not to mention CUTE! Good job, Mom and Dad!

Look for my story about Madu in next Friday's edition of the HHH!
