Review: Life, In Spite of Me by Kristen Jane Anderson

This book has taken up residence in my heart. Kristen had a lot of negative things happen in her life and the fact that she can now stand tall and share her story is amazing. She went from having a normal life to losing three friends and her grandmother. Then, she was raped by someone she thought she knew. The pain inside got to be too much and Kristen decided that she couldn't take anymore. She decided to lay down on railroad tracks and end her life. But when it came time to die, someone stood in her way, God.

This is a beautifully written book. I suffer from depression and I have wanted to die before, so at times, I felt like this book was written about me. Life isn't always easy but Kristen proves that even if you have lost all hope, you can still turn your story into something to help others.
