What I liked from this story....
This was a very powerful read by this author that was simply off the chart VERY well written so very GOOD! Yes, it was a short read but it gets to the point up front for the reader that your attention will be held all the way through this story. "Dying To Be Fine" really fits this title because for this poor child [Yasmine] thinking her body would give her all the happiness she wanted but in the end well...and bringing her sister [Stacy] into all this with her dramatic emotional life was really quite something to read about. With their mother [Cheryl] trying to lead them on the right path...but will she be able to do this? I liked how in the end their mother was now "devoting her life to young women all across America as a motivational speaker on one main topic...a women's worth... helping other women avoid the path that her children had taken teaching these women to value themselves and making wiser decisions." I don't want to tell too much but to say you must pick up this good novel to see how this author presents such a vivid picture so well to the reader. I only hope all that reads this novel gets the message.
What I especially loved about this story.
I loved at the end of the story where we find this author writes .... "Hood's Takes on a Women's Worth and the Interview with Moma Hood [Ms. Ramona]." This was written so beautifully it brought tears being so well present to the readers. Thank you, thank you to the author Mr. Hood Chronicles for such a rich emotional read that will stay with the reader long after the read.
