About the Author
For my children I am a daily manager, teacher, physical fitness instructor, financial planner, buyer, personal chef, supervisor, clerk, attorney, negotiator, arbitrator, mediator, event planner, teacher of ethics, faith, morals and values. I am their counselor and psychologist on everything. My three sons are my partners in my community volunteering. Through my associations I have been able to be a better mother by involving people of my community. The success of my children is also due to those persons' involvement in my boys' lives and their assistance to me. My success can be measured by how the boys treat me, our relatives, their school peers, adults in authority and their community, as well as how happy they are with the choices they make concerning their personal accomplishments within their schools and the communities we've lived in. http://www.linkedin.com/in/carmenmcolon

This empathy soon leads to feelings of rage for the men around her who care so little for her feelings, her dreams, her life. Like the epic heroes, Maggie rises from the depths of despair to conquer her adversaries. She picks up the pieces and becomes an example for all women whose lives don't turn out the way they dreamed they would when they were little.
Maggie is not a distant character, she is real. She is an inner city woman, the girl next door, the girl you went to high school with, your daughter, sister or mother. She is the one who hopes and dreams and then somehow has those dreams pulled out from under her. She is the strong woman who gets defiantly up and screams at the top of her lungs that she will not be conquered. She is a modern heroine.
This story is not always pretty, but that's because life isn't either. Aside from being an engrossing story, the book is filled with personal insight about life, tools to help you make it through and references to web sites and groups designed to help. If your life hasn't been picture perfect, or you know someone who has or is walking through the fire, then I recommend you read this book.
