Description: Through the eyes of the author, this Autobiography is a very inspirational read.
A young woman shares her journey with the world, to help them relate to her experience. She took a chance and wore her heart on her sleeve. This stories unique twist involves a young woman who crosses the country as a “Cali Girl” and then steps in the treacherous streets of Detroit. There she finds herself living different life styles that are similar to millions of reader’s stories. The similarity will help connects the world with this beautiful woman’s testimony.
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.
