In ‘You. I. Us.’ Annalisa Crawford captures everyday people during poignant defining moments in their lives: An artist puts his heart into his latest sketch, an elderly couple endures scrutiny by a fellow diner, an ex-student attempts to make amends with a girl she bullied at school, a teenager holds vigil at his friend’s hospital bedside, long distance lovers promise complete devotion, a broken-hearted widow stares into the sea from the edge of a cliff where her husband died, a grieving son contacts the only person he can rely on in a moment of crisis, a group of middle-aged friends inspire each other to live remarkable lives. Day after day, we make the same choices. But after reading ‘You. I. Us.’ you’ll ask yourself, “What if we didn’t?”

My Thoughts:

I was given a copy of this book for an honest review. After previously reading Annalisa’s books I was happy to be asked to review this one. I liked the style of writing and the fact that the book is made up of short stories. The cover I would have to say is very enchanting and I wasn’t too sure what I was going to get inside but I loved it. With this book I would definitely recommend savouring the words and it really makes you think about life. I don’t normally read short stories but I really enjoyed this one.

It Ain’t Easy: Short Stories By Keisa Alexandra

It Ain’t Easy: Short Stories By Keisa Alexandra

“It Ain’t Easy” is a collection of short stories on growing up in Washington, DC. If you think it’s all memorials and museums, you’re mistaken.

This collection explores the every day lives of those who reside in the city— from the around the way girls and boys in the hood to the private schools on the privileged side of town.

“It Ain’t Easy” shows one of America’s most talked about cities in a way it is rarely seen; through the eyes of the people.

My Thoughts:

I was given a copy of this book for an honest review. It is a collection of stories about what it is like to live in the part  of the city that is the gritty streets of some of the poorest parts of the city to the privileged halls of its prestigious private schools. I liked the way Keisa writes, she takes you in to the heart and mind of the characters, I didn’t realise she is only 24 years old. The title of the stories truly sums up the way some of these poor people live. Will definitely be looking out for more of her books. These stories make for a great read.
