“Angels Yell Roll Tide” was written by Darla Hall and illustrated by Elizabeth Lybrook.

Author, Darla Hall, was inspired by three boys who battled brain cancer last year and she wrote her first storybook, titled, “Angels Yell Roll Tide.” She met Hunter Alexander at her book launch for the Roll Tide Activity Book. She met Ryan Kitchens when she drove to his hometown to donate a book to him. Thomas Sullivan received a War Eagle Activity Book from Hunter and she followed his story online. This book is a heartfelt story about how football impacted these boys’ lives and their journey. Ryan and Hunter were Alabama fans. Thomas was an Auburn fan. They were all on the same team as they were fighting brain cancer. Now, all of those who were blessed to know them are raising awareness about childhood cancer and trying to make a difference in the lives of others.

This book is a heartfelt story about two boys who loved Alabama football and one boy who loved another team. To these boys, football was more than a game. It was inspiration for them to live another day. It was living every day to the fullest in their own personal battles, much like players battle to win on the field. Many times we get overwhelmed by life’s challenges. Take a few minutes to read this book and let this story change your life. These three boys and many other children like them have changed my life for the better, and I am so thankful that I was a part of their journey.

This book is dedicated to Hunter Alexander & family, Ryan Kitchens & family, and Thomas Sullivan & family. It is also dedicated to ALL children who have childhood cancer or other illness. May we all find it in our hearts to help put smiles on their faces.
