Westlake Village, CA (December 6, 2017)—Oaks Christian Online celebrates the release of “Nowhere To Run (The Prophets of Yahweh)”, penned by student-author Kailian Blohm under the pseudonym Jensina Wilson.
The historical novel is the first in a series and follows the story of a young prophet, the reluctant Jonah.
Blohm, a middle school student at Oaks Christian Online (OCO), notes that she found inspiration for her debut novel in Jonah because “his journey of fleeing the Lord and then God bringing him back makes him not only easy to relate to, but also comparable to Israel. These similarities paint a beautiful picture of God's grace, forgiveness, and unconditional love.”
The author also credits the faculty and students at OCO for their encouragement and enthusiasm during the writing process.
“Ms. Blohm’s accomplishment as a published author speaks to the level of talent within the Oaks Christian Online, and we couldn’t be more proud”. said Head of School, Rob Black.
“Nowhere to Run (The Prophets of Yahweh)” is available for purchase on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle format.

Alex Lin, an Oaks Christian Online (OCO) senior, has been hard at work in preparing for the 2nd Annual Autism Rocks Concert taking place on April 28th at Universal City Walk, Hollywood.
Alex wanted to find a way to give back to a community that he is largely a part of by pursuing his passions of helping others and participating in charity work. Alex himself has a diagnosis of mild Asperger's syndrome, so this topic is very close to his heart. He is ambitious and determined to make a difference in society with the goals he pursues. As an OCO student, he has the flexibility to pursue his interests while in high school. This concert is one way Alex has been able to invest in others while greatly benefiting the autism community.
