Taking Back the Pen
Life challenges all of us. This book is meant to empower all people who struggle in life. This book gives the life story of a young girl who faced more trials and heartbreak in life than most will ever endure. It is a story of hope and resilience. There have been many stories written on hardship. This one is unique in the sense that it all happened before reaching 25 years old. The key message is urging people to share their story and to learn from others’ mistakes no matter how bizarre. Each story has a purpose and each life has worth. This book tells the story of a girl who took the pen back from life and wrote her own story. The key is that just because your life starts a certain way, does not mean it has to end that way
