Little Girl, Lost
Her Unfortunate BlessingeBook - 2014
Fifteen year old Renita Lewis is a product of her surroundings and a victim of her own circumstances. Raised by a single mother whose unstable and volatile relationships with a steady string of live-in boyfriends, Renita quickly learns that lust is fleeting, and love has no place in her life. Simultaneously she realizes that drugs and alcohol are great numbing agents to her ever-growing dissatisfaction with life as she knows it. As her life spins further out of control, she attends a college party and unwittingly sets about a chain of events that will forever change the direction of her life. When she discovers she is pregnant, will the unconditional love and support of her sister and best friend be enough to keep her from ending not only her life, but the life of her unborn child as well? Just as she struggles to cope with the conception of a child she could never bring herself to love, Renita's reality shifts again as she comes face to face with her own father that she never knew. But this new-found knowledge brings dark family secrets to light that threaten the fledgling happiness of not only Renita, but everyone she's closest to.
