Description: Through the eyes of the author, this Autobiography is a very inspirational read.

At first she couldn’t see what her journey had in store for her. It wasn’t until her life changed for the better, a young woman started to see the truth from her experiences. This woman’s started to see the truth from her experiences. This woman’s true story helps people heal from sexual, physical, mental, verbal abuse, as well as death loss, addiction issues, abandonment issues, and any transitional change that may affect a person.


 

My thoughts: This is a different kind of biography that follows this young lady as she goes from one place to another, one city and state to another, trying to find where she fits in and belongs. Never really feeling wanted, because of her childhood, she moves herself on at times, after she’s an adult if things don’t feel comfortable. It’s a tough way to live, especially when she goes to Detroit, Michigan to meet a female, hoping for a relationship to blossom. One did for a while, but ultimately it doesn’t work out and she has to find somewhere else to stay.

Once again, she finds herself where she really knows almost no one, and is unfamiliar with the streets, the bad areas, etc. I enjoyed the book as I’m from Michigan (near the Flint area) and wanted to see how her time went in Detroit of that time. I found it interesting of course, as a snapshot of her experiences of that time and place. The writing needs the guiding hand of an editor to do a bit of massaging, but it is an honest read.  Advanced electronic review copy was provided by NetGalley, author Tianna Jones, and the publisher.

  1. How bad is the editing? Does it detract from the writing? I’m trying to decide if I would want to read it because the story sounds engaging, but I can rarely get over editing issues.

    Also, I didn’t know you were from Michigan, did I? lol I went to Western Michigan University for undergrad.

    1. Hi, yes it does affect the reading of it, I’m afraid. You can get through it for the story, but it’s there. I’ve seen worse, but I have trouble with editing issues too. I’m not sure if we’ve ever talked about the Michigan thing before 🙂 I’m really homesick for there, got a wonderful bestie I haven’t seen in 30 years now. Where is Western?
