The Little Relentless Ones

Thank you for supporting B2G, G2YL, and PHABB 5 relentless Student Authors. This literacy opportunity was made possible by the generous support of Councilwoman Michelle Chambers, the office of Assemblymember Mike Gipson, and the California State Librarian’s office.

The Little Relentless Ones features nine amazingly fresh and engaging short stories from students in both 4th and 5th grade. The authors participated in a rigorous 12-week virtual Publishing Hope and Branding A+ Behavior (PHABB 5) young writer’s workshop in which the students were tasked with creating a well-defined character who successfully overcomes a difficult situation.



of PHABB 5 is to reinvigorate, inspire, and unite communities at their core by creating turnkey comprehensive book publishing programs that help student’s standout during every phase of life.


is to reverse the trend of illiteracy, reduce the dropout rate and increase matriculation by creating a world in which students graduate with their diploma in one hand and their published literary work in the other.



In 2011, CJ Miller was invited to a recidivism reduction event hosted by the Ohio Department Correction facility; at the event, Miller addressed 250 low-level offending inmates. At the conclusion of his speech, Miller was overwhelmed by the number of inmates (many in their 20’s and 30’s) who stood in line to ask him if he could help them get their creative writings, songs, and art out to the world.

“Did they have these creative ideas before making the decisions that led to incarceration?” This question led Miller to invest countless hours into understanding the relationship between literacy and incarceration.

According to the National Assessment of Adult Literacy, two-thirds of students that cannot read proficiently by the end of the 4th grade will end up in jail or on welfare.

While researching illiteracy disparities Miller asked himself, “What would happen if someone were to plant satellite brand development book publishing programs at the classroom, neighborhood, and corporate level?” And, PHABB 5 was born.


What We Do

Plant satellite literacy student author book publishing programs within schools, communities, and partnered organizations. During the course of the program students learn to write and edit their literary work, brand and market, and plan their own community based book signing event.

I want to thank you Mr. Miller for helping my daughter reach one of her goals and that was publish a story. This experience has helped her reach another goal and it was to be able to present her published story as part of her portfolio to the California School of the Arts. She really wanted to attend this High School in the coming year, well she just received her acceptance to this great school!! Thank you SO much for all your instruction and commitment to our daughter and students in KIPP Sol.
