"The thesis of her autobiography is that you have the power to turn around your life, no matter how dire your circumstances may appear. You are not responsible for the environment in which you were born or raised, but you do have the power to write the rest of your story.

"Through adversity most of us can’t imagine, this young girl never gave up on herself or life or even the people who had hurt her. With her faith she kept on and continued to strive for a better life. Now as a young adult she faces her demons and forgives them.
