Rahkal’s raw and honest journey provides inspiration not just to her intended audience of young black women but to anyone and everyone who reads it. I definitely fall outside her key demographic, yet I gleaned from her perseverance despite incredible odds.
Hold on tight and get ready for a wild ride as you accompany Rahkal on her journey. Set some time aside, grab a cup of coffee and prepare to lose some sleep in the process as you won’t be able to put this one down! You, Rahkal, epitomize what it means to be a true overcomer. Much respect! 5/5 stars.
