    I was one of the people who won this book on I gave it five out of five stars on the site and posted this review. Thank you so much!!

    This book was incredible. It’s an anthology like no other I’ve ever read. I laughed and cried..sometimes while reading the same piece!! The passages are exceptional, so moving… so not your typical “everything’s going to be okay because I said so”. It’s more like “everything’s going to be okay because it always is..even when it’s not.. because we’re still here and have the courage to share our stories with someone else”. I hope that makes sense. I just finished the book about a minute ago so I’m still so filled with emotion and hope I’m not rambling. Thank you Ms. Beals for all of your hard work in putting this forth into the world and to all the authors who shared their words. I’m recommending this to everyone I know. This is a book I’d give as a gift to the people I care about in times of strife.
