Raw Emotion. Life or Death. Truthfully Delivered. Vicki was 28 when her neat world crumbled. Her moral compass–beloved Gramps–died suddenly, leaving Vicki depressed and insecure. Despite a series of poor choices in men and life, by 24, Vicki had built a career as a noted crime reporter, wife, and mother. But success led to disaster.
Vicki’s perfect world crumbled with bitter family upheaval, leading to multiple suicide attempts. Now 38, Vicki lays her soul bare and shares the pivotal moments of her roller-coaster life: depression, grief, heartache, trauma, drugging, and suicide, truthfully, and candidly.
Her story is heartbreaking, inspiring, and unexpectedly witty. Most of all, “Still Standing” is a remarkable story of resilience and survival –an honest portrayal of one woman’s life and her determination for a new beginning.
I found this an emotional journey of a woman who writes with honesty but also which people can relate to. I found it very raw and emotional, you literally will go through every emotion within this book, it is about a young woman who is going through it and really suffering when no help is available. I found her to be a brave and strong woman who has put her words into telling her incredibly brave story. I find her an inspiration.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
