FEATURED BOOK QUOTES

"I rented a moving truck, hitched my car behind it and I climbed into the cab with my then six-year-old daughter. I had walked away from seemingly everything that made me seem like an established and successful adult. But as the miles rolled along, all I could think about was how happy I was to be in the middle of rescuing myself."

— JAMEA ADAMS-GINYARD

"I willingly gave up everything that day to save myself. On the outside looking in, I was living my best life and I had a fantastic Facebook feed to prove it. Except it was all a lie. Inside, I was drowning."
