Gifts in Brown Paper Packages
“Gifts” is a story of a young girl’s survival driven by strength, personal growth, a journey to self-awareness, and acknowledging her truth. The book features vivid episodic flashbacks from Kyrie’s adolescence and young adulthood and experiences that are sometimes funny, often shocking and painful, and always genuine. Kyrie ultimately embraces the gifts that strife offers despite its unpalatable aspects and reveals her growth while displaying the perseverance that births her power and voice.
Outstanding story. I highly recommend for anyone struggling with a difficult time in life. This story about perseverance is so inspiring; great read and well written.
