Riveting Jul 29, 2009
I had the priviledge of being exposed to this author's story before she was picked up by a "big time publisher." As a man I traditionally don't go for these types of stories but something about the way Lejon conveys this story transcends gender, class, and ideology. She makes you deal with the all too common reality of life as it is--yet inspiring you to hope. Read it and weep--then go on and live your best life!
