Stephanie Land is a quiet hero. As a brand new young mother she left her abusive partner to become a homeless single parent. This is her story of dedication to herself and baby, of struggling to meet the demands of social services, how she cared for her daughter, put herself through undergraduate school, and broke away from the shelter system. Most would have quit before trying. Stephanie starved. She cried a lot. She cleaned homes for the middle class, and she wrote this courageous memoir. If you want to truly understand what millions of Americans face every day, and how easily this can happen to many more, this book can help you. ~ Reviewed by Nancy Scheemaker
This memoir is electric.
This writing of hard truths is so important.
As with her powerful, award winning young adult novel SPEAK, the author shares her story of sexual violence, a tidal wave that immersed her two weeks before high school and sent crashing waves and ripples throughout the rest of her life. Refusing to drown, she wrote. She writes. She speaks. ~ Reviewed by Nancy Scheemaker
Why did rising artist Alicia Berenson violently murder her beloved husband Gabrielle one hot August night and then refuse to ever speak again? The Silent Patient, by Alex Michaelides, is a dazzling, seductive, deceitful, white knuckle ride. I was hooked from the first chapter and quite duped until the last. Leave room in your schedule once you crack the first page - this is classic unputdownable. ~ Reviewed by Nancy Scheemaker
