Life In spite of Me by Kristen Anderson Blog Tour & Giveaway:

Life, In Spite of Me

About the Book:
Kristen Anderson thought she had the picture-perfect life until strokes of gray dimmed her outlook: three friends and her grandmother died within two years. Still reeling from these losses, she was raped by a friend she thought she could trust. She soon spiraled into a seemingly bottomless depression.
One January night, the seventeen-year-old decided she no longer wanted to deal with the emotional pain that smothered her. She lay down on a set of cold railroad tracks and waited for a freight train to send her to heaven…and peace.
But Kristen’s story doesn’t end there.
In Life, In Spite of Me this remarkably joyful young woman shares the miracle of her survival, the agonizing aftermath of her failed suicide attempt, and the hope that has completely transformed her life, giving her a powerful purpose for living.
Her gripping story of finding joy against all odds provides a vivid and unforgettable reminder that life is a gift to be treasured. 

About the Author:
Kristen Jane Anderson has been featured on Oprah and is a popular speaker at colleges, women’s and youth events, churches, and suicide prevention outreaches. A graduate of Moody Bible Institute and the founder of Reaching You Ministries, Kristen seeks to help those who are hurting, hopeless, lost, suicidal and depressed.

My thoughts:
This book was a hard read for me at times, cause i have been there a few times myself. Wanting to give up and not look back. I was lucky enough to find my way back out. Depression can be a very evil thing. With that said… reading this book, really inspires you to fight harder. Move over those hurdles and find the things that really matter. I would definitely would suggest this book to annoy who needs some help finding there way back. Amazing, and inspiring book!
